O Lord of Hosts,
I thank Thee for this day ~ for my life,
for my loved ones ~ for my family and friends!
Forgive me for everything I need be forgiven for.
I am not as wise as that crafty old serpent,
nor am I as cunning as the snake that nips at my heels.
O Lord God Almighty,
Send Saint Michael to defend me from the outside in.
Awaken the Christ within me!
Drive away the tempt to sin.
Penetrate the innermost midst of my soul.
Radiate an aura of love and protection around me
that I may go forth in confidence,
learning to trust Thee more and more,
with every step I take, thus increasing my faith in Thee
day after day, hour after hour, and minute by minute.
Whatever Thy will, let it be ~ I will forgive Thee.
Deliver me, defend me, and save my soul, O Lord!
Truly in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray.
Saint 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 host,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
