The Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel is a popular Catholic prayer asking for the intercession and protection of the archangel Michael against the forces of evil. St. Michael is considered the defender of the Church and the protector of Christians, and this prayer is often recited in times of spiritual warfare and temptation.
Here is the text of the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel:
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
The prayer acknowledges the reality of spiritual warfare and calls upon St. Michael to defend and protect us from the attacks of the devil and his minions. It is often used as a spiritual weapon against temptation and evil, and is a powerful reminder of the protection and intercession of the saints in our lives.
