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!

Worth Revisiting: A Prayer for Priests

Lord, we ask that You bless and protect Your priests, 

For those priests who are tired and burnt out, please fill them, again, with Your Holy Spirit. 

For those priests who are full of the Holy Spirit, grant them Your Peace and a burning thirst for souls. 

For those priests who are attacked by evil, protect them.

For those priests who are tempted to sin, strengthen them.

For those priests who sin grievously against those who trust them, grant them true repentance  and salvation. 

For those priests who defy the magisterium of the Church,  grant them forgiveness.

For those priests who are unkind, treat them with kindness and mercy. 

For those priests who cannot forgive, forgive them. 

For those priests who empty themselves in Your service, fill them with Your love. 

For those priests, who have fallen away from You and Your church, guide them back to the right path. 

For those priests who suffer from illnesses of the mind and body, heal and cure them. 

For those priests who are martyrs, greet them with outstretched arms when they die. 

For those priests who die in sin, extend to them Your Mercy and Forgiveness. 

For those priests who are in Purgatory, expiate their sins so that they may rest in Your Glory. 

For those priests who stray into the New Age, bring them back to You. 

For those priests who have turned their backs on You, lead them back to You. 

For those priests who no longer want to serve, give them the burning love for souls that only You can satisfy. 

For those priests who have a fiery love for You and for souls, bless them.

For all your priests, cover them with Your most precious blood and anoint them in Your love. 

For all Your priests, I pray.

Come, Holy Spirit, Come.  Fill all Your Priests and bless them with the fruits and gifts of your grace.  Give them strength when they minister to those in need.  Give them health when they are exhausted and need rest.  Help them to see the Face of Jesus in all souls.
