Prayer to the Archangels
Feast of the Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael
A Prayer to Saint Michael
Saint Michael, 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 the other evil spirits who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
A Prayer to Saint Gabriel
Blessed Saint Gabriel, Archangel
We beseech you to intercede for us at the throne of divine mercy:
As you announced to Mary the mystery of the Incarnation,
so through your prayers may we receive strength of faith and courage of spirit,
and thus find favor with God and redemption through Christ Our Lord.
May we sing the praise of God our Savior
with the angels and saints in heaven forever and ever. Amen.
A Prayer to Saint Raphael
Blessed Saint Raphael, Archangel,
We beseech you to help us in all our needs and trials of this life,
as you, through the power of God, restored sight to Tobit
and give guidance to young Tobiah.
We humbly seek your aid and intercession,
that our souls may be healed,
our bodies protected from all ills,
and that through divine grace we may be made fit
to dwell in the eternal Glory of God in heaven. Amen.
