7. Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
There are few words the devil must hate to hear as much as these. Saint Michael is the defender of all faithful, and his sword is swift and keen. When confronted with evil, these words invoke St. Michael’s protection and invite his incredible intercession.
Holy Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
