St. Michael Prayer

St. 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, thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the Power of God, cast into hell satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Glory to God in the Highest!

Prayer for Peace in Syria

God of Compassion,
Hear the cries of the people in Syria,
bring healing to those suffering from the violence,
bring comfort to those mourning the dead,
strengthen Syria's neighbors in their care and welcome for refuges,
convert the hearts of those who have taken up arms, 
and protect those committed to peace.
God of Hope,
inspire leaders to choose peace over violence and to seek
reconciliation with enemies,
inspire the Church around the world with 
compassion for the people of Syria,
and give us hope for a future of peace built in justice for all.
We ask this through
Jesus Christ,
Prince of Peace
Light of the world.

(editor's note: Sadly, any other country's name could be substituted for Syria.)
