ST MICHAEL PRAYER For Protection [With IMAGE Gallery]

We have this beautiful St Michael Prayer with an image gallery for easier Social Share. St Michael is an Archangel that is mentioned 3 times in the book of Daniel. He is God`s messenger to people in bad times. He is a patron to policemen, Paratroopers, and Miners. He is a front-row warrior against Satan and guardian to the Church. It is known as a Sunday Prayer, because this day we have dedicated to our Lord.

Michael in Hebrew means: who is like God or who is equal to God? St Michael has been portrayed since the first Christian times as a duke, holding a spear in his right hand, with which he pierces Lucifer, Satan, and a green palm branch in his left. The top of the spear has a cloth ribbon with a red cross. Archangel Michael is considered especially a guardian of the Orthodox faith and a fighter against religious heresies.

St Michael prayer was composed by Pope Leo Xlll, and since then it has become an Anthem in people’s fight against the Devil and evil spirits.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in 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, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Archangel Michael is one of the seven Archangels of God that the Holy Tradition tells us about (because, as you know, Christians keep not only the Scriptures – what the apostles recorded, but also the Tradition – what was also passed from mouth to mouth). But Michael is not alone and is not just one of the Archangels.

Ortodox St Michael church

After convincing the rest of his angelic brethren, who disagreed that Satan could be like God, they rebelled against the liar, shouting “Who is like God ?!”, and defeating him, he took the place of his infamous ex-brother. After all, Satan was in charge of the angels, and until the fall he bore a name that corresponded to his then-untouched essence: Lucifer, where the “Luci” is the morning, and the “Fer” is a star. He, the Morning Star, was beautiful among the angels.

But he became proud, deciding that, being so beautiful and powerful, he could become God himself without God, convincing many other angels of this, then he confused and deceived Eve, who tasted the forbidden tree and pushed Adam to do the same, after which degenerated into a sadist and the ugliest and lowest creature in the entire universe. After Michael threw him into hell, God blessed his faithful creature and set him up for all the remaining angels.

We do not know how, before his feat, they called him the future angelic dukes, but only after that war did they start calling him in all centuries the cry “Who is God” or – Michael. His title is now Archangel. From this story, we see that Archangel Michael – the main one in the fight against the spirits of darkness and has a special grace from God to “step” on these “snakes”. There are many prayers to be able to call into space the help of the most expressive, honest, and holy warrior.
