Reaching out to Catholic/Christians Individuals/Families

St Michael the Archangel (let us pray) by Florence D’Costa

We are now living in a world where persecution of Believers is very common.  Everyday, somewhere around the world Believers are being killed and persecuted.  Everyday the blood of these martyrs are calling out to God …….  These days have become very difficult for those who believe in Christ. So, I call out to all Catholics to pray to St Michael the Archangel to defend us in the day of battle against the devil or the evil one.

The Book of Revelation (12:7-9) describes a war in heaven in which Michael, being stronger, defeats Satan.[12] After the conflict, Satan is thrown to earth along with the fallen angels, where he (“that ancient serpent called the devil”) still tries to “lead the whole world astray”.[12]

In the Epistle of Jude 1:9, Michael is referred to as an “archangel” when he again confronts Satan.[13]

A reference to an “archangel” also appears in the First Epistle to the Thessalonians 4:16. This archangel who heralds the second coming of Christ is             not named,[13] but is often associated with Michael (among others).[14][15]

ST MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL –  He is the leader of all the good angels.  He along with the good angels fought against the bad angels and his War Cry was
“Who is like unto God” and He won the battle.  
We are all called to fight against the bad influences in our lives and live for God.  Whenever we fail and fall into the enemies camp, we need to pray to St Michael to defend us.  The prayer is as follows:

Prayer to St Michael the Archangel:

Saint Michael the Archangel,
Defend us in the day of 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,
Cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
Who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls.  Amen.

(The St Michael’s prayer is a very powerful prayer and I think adults should say this prayer on a regular basis).
