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 Lord is near, do not be anxious about anything. Instead, pray about everything. (Philippians: 4:5-6)
