Prayer Request

From my dearest friend:

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I have a simple and odd request. A friend of mine e-mailed me with an
insight to pray for the Church which is, as always, under attack. Let us
all take time to pray for the Church and remember how much we love God.

Holy Spirit, abide with us.



O glorious prince St. Michael,
chief and commander of the heavenly hosts,
guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits,
servant in the house of the Divine King
and our admirable conductor,
you who shine with excellence
and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil,
we turn to you with confidence:
Enable us by your gracious protection
to serve God more and more faithfully every day.


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.
