    Love love love St. Michael!! While Adam was in Iraq (at that point we were just “friends”), I’d pray the St. Michael prayer for him daily, changing the words to “St. Michael the Archangel, defend Adam in battle, be his protection. . .” When he returned and we did start dating, we chose St. Michael as the patron of our relationship. I probably pray this prayer at least five times a day! One of my favorites! On nights that we just fall into bed, it’s the one prayer we make sure we pray together. We may just have to do the consecration! Thanks!

    • Lucy’s at the age where Heaven and Hell, God and the Devil, and good and evil are all fascinating to her, yet still somewhat scary and incomprehensible for her developing mind. We are slowing introducing the prayer to her, but its jarring words precipitate so many dramatic visions for her vivid imagination. If you (or anyone reading this for that matter) have thoughts about how to introduce the St. Michael prayer to young ones, we welcome ideas. For now, we pray the Guardian Angel prayer with her.

      • I’ve been saying the St Micheal Prayer with the Kaboodle for years. Rachel actually learned it before I was even aware she was paying attention.

        So far, my kids haven’t seemed nervous/scared — maybe it’s more their personalities, but the mere mention of St Michael brings a resounding “YEAH!” from my crew. They love it. Swords and armor, you know.

        On the nights when I’m working, and miss bedtime with the littles, I pray this prayer over them, long after they’ve gone to sleep.

        I agree with you — we ARE going to be tried, tested and attacked. I’m sending this article on to Brett, to pray this over our home.

  2. When our kids were still too young for the scariness but could understand the concept of good and evil, as well as our constant need to fight temptation, etc., I taught them about St. Michael the Archangel and they memorized just the first line of the prayer, “St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.” I encouraged them to pray it anytime they were tempted or had to make a hard decision between good and bad. As they learned and understood more, we memorized the entire prayer together as a family and often pray it as a bedtime prayer. You may have noticed it is posted in almost every room of our house. I bet I pray it half a dozen times a day myself and remind the kids of it at least a time or two as well. It all depends on the maturity level of the child and how much they can handle but every little bit helps.

    I have always asked my Guardian Angel to carry messages from my heart to the Guardian Angels of people I love. It hasn’t occurred to me to pray directly to Saint Michael, as I feel too unworthy to address such an angel directly. Is it encouraged to address Saint Michael directly? I think Pope Francis is of course a person who could do so, but I feel Mary (me :-) is not worthy. ??????

      Everyone should pray to the Archangel Michael directly. He always listen to everyone who have faith in him and God the father.

      He is always here for me and my family and I’ll always thank God for this beautiful gift he gave my family and I 8 years ago.

      So many many experiences lived with him.

      His so great. Love him so much.

      I am 55 years of age and raised in the Catholic tradition. Of course, I had always heard of angels growing up but truthfully thought the topic was on the same level as the Easter bunny. I was also involved for a few years (in my late 20s) with the Charismatic Renewal within the Catholic church. I was also told as we try to get closer to Christ and the Holy Spirit, we must be prepared for spiritual battle. Anyway, on another topic, during the last 10 years I had developed a dependency on alcohol (wine with dinner and another glass or two later in the evening.) Every other night to every night. I had tried twice to give it up, having stopped for 8 months and then another time for 9 months. I always went back to it as a way to wind down after work. Even though it was fairly easy for me to stop–I didn’t miss it–I picked it back up again out of boredom. When I finally realized I did not want this at ALL in my life, I cried out to God the father. I then asked (for the first time in my life, mind you) St. Michael the archangel for help in this matter–to protect and defend me against the enemy. I am still sober and so grateful!

      That reminds me. Tomorrow I am going to go out and get the St. Michael’s prayer for my home. I think I’ll return to church as well.

        So proud of you. Consider finding a good priest who will hear your general confession as well as a deliverance prayer. Don’t give up right away upon finding one who is learned in this way. The devil has already infiltrated the church and will stop a nothing to keep you from this gift.

    St Michael has always helped me in time of need. I love him so much with all my heart.
    Everyone should put their trust and faith in St Michael, he will never let you down.

    I want to thanks him so so so much for always being there for me, and my children
    when no one else was.

    I have 2 beautiful Statues of St Michael in my home. It feel like he’s always watching
    over us. I feel very special knowing he’s by our side no matter what.

    Thank you St Micheal !!!!!

  5. Really timely post. This morning Karen said over coffee that she wants to memorize the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. This is not a prayer we’ve been saying in our house. We shall start. I felt compelled to read aloud the consecration prayer to St. Michael here in my office. I’m ready for battle. Thanks for a post that is immediately relevant to the times in which we live.
