Pray for spiritual protection during Lent with this prayer

SAINT MICHAEL

"Defend us, O Lord, from all dangers of mind and body."

Lent is a battlefield, one where we follow Jesus into the desert to wage a spiritual war against the temptations of the devil. It’s not easy and opens us up to spiritual attacks that try to lure us away from the practice of our faith.

As the season of Lent approaches, it’s most appropriate to “put on the armor of God” and ask for divine protection in this regard. The saints and angels that surround us are ready to come to our aid and shield us from the buffets of this world.

Below is a traditional prayer that can be prayed for this particular intention.

Defend us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, from all dangers of mind and body. And through the intercession of the blessed and glorious Mary, ever Virgin, Mother of God, of St. Joseph, of Thy Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the saints, in Thy loving kindness grant us safety and peace; that, all adversities and errors being overcome, Thy Church may serve Thee in security and freedom.
