Praying to the St. Michael, Archangel

Saint John Paul II Recommends Praying the St. Michael Prayer.

On April 24th 1994, Pope John Paul II recommended the Catholic faithful to continue praying the St. Michael Exorcism prayer: 

„May prayer strengthen us for the spiritual battle we are told about in the Letter to the Ephesians: ‚Draw strength from the Lord and from His mighty power‘ (Ephesians 6:10). The Book of Revelation refers to this same battle, recalling before our eyes the image of St. Michael the Archangel (Revelation 12:7). Pope Leo XIII certainly had a very vivid recollection of this scene when, at the end of the last century, he introduced a special prayer to St. Michael throughout the Church. Although this prayer is no longer recited at the end of Mass, I ask everyone not to forget it and to recite it to obtain help in the battle against forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world.”

„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 divine power of God, cast into hell Satan, and all evil spirits who wander now throughout your world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen”

„Heiliger Erzengel Michael, verteidige uns im Kampfe gegen die Bosheit und die Nachstellungen des Teufels, sei unser Schutz. Gott gebiete ihm , so bitten wir flehentlich; du aber, Fürst der himmlischen Heerscharen, stoße den Satan und die anderen bösen Geister, die in der Welt umherschleichen, um die Seelen zu verderben, durch die Kraft Gottes in die Hölle. Amen.“

„Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. ‚Imperet illi Deus‘, supplices deprecamur: tuque, Princeps militiae coelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo, divina virtute, in  infernum detrude. Amen.“
