Novena to St. Michael the Archangel (2023)
Heavenly and Almighty Father, God of mercy and compassion,
we give you thanks and praise for all your kindness and blessings
which you bestow upon us, your beloved children,
and for the opportunities of spiritual renewal
which you provide out of the abundance of your unfailing love and graciousness.
As we honour the glorious Archangel St. Michael,
whose zeal for your almighty power obtains for us your own loving protection,
in the name of Christ our Saviour and Brother and through your Holy Spirit,
guide our steps along the path of holiness of life, and guard our thoughts
as we journey through this life to our heavenly homeland.
Confident of the powerful intercession of our patron saint St. Michael,
we now ask for this grace
(say your intention)
Inspire in us the same humility and thirst for justice and holiness
which animated your great servant and angelic messenger.
May our lives give glory to you, our families bear witness to your love
and our communities of faith be filled with the grace and joys of your Kingdom.
St. 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 Hosts,
by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
St. Michael, filled with the wisdom of God, pray for us.
St. Michael, perfect adorer of the Incarnate Word, pray for us.
St. Michael, crowned with honour and glory, pray for us.
St. Michael, our help in all adversities, pray for us.
