St. Michael Novena & Consecration Prayer for Spiritual Protection

Sep 19, 2018 By Ashley Osmera

The Church celebrates the feast of the Archangels—Gabriel, Raphael, and Michael—on September 29th.

St. Michael the Archangel holds the particular title of “Conqueror of Satan” and stands as the patron of protection against the “wickedness and snares of the devil.” He is also the Guardian of the Catholic Faith, the Champion of God's people, and the Defender of the Church.

Now more than ever we need to entrust ourselves and our families to the spiritual protection of St. Michael amidst the current crisis in the Church. He will help us triumph during this time of trial and suffering, and ensure that our faith will not be harmed, weakened, or lost.

Therefore we at The Catholic Company have decided to pray a novena to St. Michael leading up to his feast day. We will end by consecrating our company to his special protection.

We encourage you to pray this novena and make the consecration as well!

Here is the novena and a consecration prayer to St. Michael the Archangel. Please join us in praying for the Church and for the strengthening of our faith.

Novena to St. Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel, loyal champion of God and His people, I turn to you with confidence and seek your powerful intercession.

For the love of God, Who made you so glorious in grace and power, and for the love of the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of the Angels, be pleased to hear my prayer.

You know the value of my soul in the eyes of God. May no stain of evil ever disfigure its beauty. Help me to conquer the evil spirit who tempts me.

I desire to imitate your loyalty to God and Holy Mother Church and your great love for God and people. And since you are God's messenger for the care of His people, I entrust to you this special request:

(Mention your request here)

Saint Michael, since you are, by the Will of the Creator, the powerful intercessor of Christians, I have great confidence in your prayers. I earnestly trust that if it is God's holy will my petition will be granted.

Pray for me, Saint Michael, and also for those I love. Protect us in all dangers of body and soul. Help us in our daily needs.

Through your powerful intercession, may we live a holy life, die a happy death, and reach heaven where we may praise and love God with you forever. Amen.

Consecration to St. Michael the Archangel

O St. Michael the Archangel, most Noble Prince of the Angelic Hierarchies, valorous warrior of Almighty God, and zealous lover of His Glory, terror of the rebellious angels, and love and delight of all the just, desiring to be numbered among thy devoted servants, I, today offer and consecrate myself to thee, and place myself, my family and all I possess under thy most powerful protection.

I entreat thee not to look at how little, I, as thy servant have to offer, being only a wretched sinner, but rather gaze, with favorable eye, at the heartfelt affection with which this offering is made.

Remember that, if from this day onward, I am under thy patronage, thou must assist me during all my life and procure for me the pardon of my many sins, and the grace to love God, my dear Savior Jesus, and my Sweet Mother Mary with all my heart. Obtain for me the help necessary to arrive at my crown of glory.

Defend me always from my spiritual enemies, particularly in the last moments of my life.

Come then, O Glorious Prince. Succor me in my last struggle. With thy powerful weapon cast far from me and into the infernal abyss that prevaricator and proud angel that thou prostrated in the celestial battle.

Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battles so that we may not perish in the Last Judgment. Amen.

St.Michael, Please protect my loved ones from all danger, harm & evil. Protect them from any & all serious health issues, healing current health issues & preventing future serious pain/illness.
In Jesus' name I pray -

Protect me from the sin in my family and surroundings.

Protect my family from sin.

Intercede in the devil's influence and dominion in the life, family, friends, soul, body and mind of Victor B.

Protect the Catholic church family from the attacks in the media and from within ourselves. Lift us up to the light of His face, oh Michael, our protector.

In delivering us from the devil, bring us ever closer to God's perfect peace. Quiet the confusion of the Evil one within our hearts and minds so we may dwell and abide with our Lord.

St. Michael, please place thy protection around me and all of my family against all Temptations, especially my brother Eric, who needs protection against his demons, drugs and all that implies. Please bring him back to the person he grew up to be, with kindness and a good heart and the need to always help others in need. Please keep thy protection around my husband and son who travel for their jobs. Keep Temptations from them and always keep them safe.
