Defend us in battle

As evil continues to increase in the world, it would be beneficial and efficacious to pray the prayer to St. Michael, the great defender of the Church, daily.   Let us pray for his intercession, that St. Michael will do battle for us and scatter our enemies, both those in the world and in the Church.

“Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.  The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.”  ~Apocalypse 12:7-9

Now is the time when St. Michael will rise up to protect the children of light, the children of the Church, those faithful to his master and captain, Our Lord Jesus Christ.

“But at that time shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who standeth for the children of thy people: and a time shall come such as never was from the time that nations began even until that time. And at that time shall thy people be saved, every one that shall be found written in the book.”  ~Daniel 12:1

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, 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.

~Damsel of the Faith

    Well-spoken sister.
    Especially with the claims of the Al-Nusra leader this week, I find myself wanting to abandon the “safety” of my home here in the U.S. in favor of the “war-torn” Syria. I would imagine it would be less tense trying to claim safety in a nation that supports terrorists as opposed to being involved in the actual fighting.

    I would never thought I’d imagine myself even thinking that…

    But here, there is an even greater, intense war nobody seems aware about–a spiritual warfare. And I don’t think my family is sensing it as they tend to be more liberal-leaning so any talk of spiritual warfare is generally silenced or criticized.
