PRAYER TO ST. MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL # 2

For Personal Protection

St. Michael, the Archangel!
Glorious Prince,
chief and champion of the heavenly hosts;
guardian of the souls of men;
conqueror of the rebel angels!
How beautiful art thou,
in thy heaven-made armor.
We love thee,
dear Prince of Heaven!

We, thy happy clients,
yearn to enjoy thy special protection.
Obtain for us from God a share of thy sturdy courage;
pray that we may have a strong and tender love for our Redeemer and,
in every danger or temptation,
be invincible against the enemy of our souls.
O standard-bearer of our salvation!
Be with us in our last moments and when our souls quit this earthly exile,
carry them safely to the judgement seat of Christ,
and may Our Lord and Master bid thee bear us speedily
to the kingdom of eternal bliss.
Teach us ever to repeat the sublime cry: “Who is like unto God?”

Amen.

What is prayer?

Prayer is the lifting up of our minds and hearts to God.

Let us lift up our hearts with our hands to the Lord in the heavens. (Lamentations 3:41)

How do we know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly?

We know that God always hears our prayers if we pray properly because Our Lord has promised: “If you ask the Father anything in My name, He will give it to you.”

And whatever you ask in my name, that I will do, in order that the Father may be glorified in the Son. (John 14:13)

Why do we not always obtain what we pray for?

We do not always obtain what we pray for, either because we have not prayed properly or because God sees that what we are asking would not be for our good.

You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it upon your passions. (James 4:3)

Prayer from the Baltimore Catechism
