Pray this prayer to St. Michael the Archangel to ask for God's protection over the entire Church and all within it.

St. Michael the Archangel has a long history of protecting God’s people. He is known as one of the most powerful defenders of the Catholic Church, and many turn to him in prayer, asking St. Michael to protect the Church.

The heavenly archangel is always there, ready to come to our aid. We simply need to invoke his intercession and allow him to protect us in our spiritual battle.

Here is a common prayer to the archangel to protect the Church and her members.

O glorious St. Michael, guardian and defender of the Church of Jesus Christ, come to the assistance of this Church, against which the powers of hell are unchained, guard with especial care her august Head, and obtain that for him and for us the hour of triumph may speedily arrive.

O glorious Archangel St. Michael, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults of the demon, assist us especially at the hour of death; obtain for us a favorable judgment, and the happiness of beholding God face to face for endless ages. Amen.
