Leaders of the heavenly armies,
although we are unworthy, we always beseech you,
to fortify us by your prayers and to shelter us beneath the wings of your sublime glory. 
Watch over us who bow to you and cry out fervently: 
Deliver us from danger, for you are the commanders of the powers on high.
                                        – Troparion for Saint Michael and the Holy Angels

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 point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (RSVCE)
