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!

Words of Blessing

"The Lord spoke to Moses saying:  Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying,  Thus you shall bless the Israelites:  You shall say to them,

The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace."

Numbers 6: 22-27

So it was that the Lord God of Israel blessed His people.  Everyday, we have a choice to bless people or not.  There are many words of blessing.  Sometimes, all we need to know are the words.  This is my list.  Yours might be longer.  I urge you to make a list and use these words frequently with those you love, and, more importantly, with those you don't like.

God Bless You
I love you
May you be blessed
For you
I give you my love
I hold you in my heart
I will love you for the rest of my life
I hope you feel better.
Let me hold you.
I give you my heart.
I want to help you.
May I help you
Listen to me
May I help you find a seat
May I carry that for you
How was your day
Let's do this together.
Are you all right
My heart is in your heart.
I will never forget you
Peace be with you
Have a good day
How can I help you
What would you like for dinner
Did you clean your room

What words can you add to this list?
