The Protection of Archangel Michael

Blessed Michael Archangel, defend us in the battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and you, O Prince of the heavenly host, cast down into hell Satan and all evil spirits, who wander the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Archangel Michael

Hymn of Praise to The Holy Archangel Michael and all the Bodiless Powers of Heaven

Heavenly Commanders, Who watch over us with great care, Cover us with your wings, And shield us with your power.

Armed with the power of God, Crowned by His glory, You wield flaming swords, To cut the demons down.

Swift, swift as rays of light You soar on the clouds- The clouds of the air- Where you do battle for God.

Without fatigue and without sleep You hover ceaselessly Over men and created things, And over countless worlds.

Behold, yours are mighty armies, Legions virtuous, And gentle battalions of angels: And, according to the Creator, our brothers.

Commanders of the might of heaven, Lead us where we need to go- To the throne of the Most High Who created us from nothing.

(From the Prologue of Ohrid)
