O glorious St. Michael,Â the Archangel,Â leader of the angelsÂ who stoodÂ against Lucifer and his devils,Â I stand before youÂ with a broken heart,Â weighed down by problems whichÂ I cannot understand nor solve.
Your sword was instrumentalÂ in the defeat of Satan,Â the prince of darkness.Â I beseech you –Â help me withstandÂ this darkness thatÂ engulfs me and my life.Â Protect meÂ from negative thoughtsÂ and lift my spiritÂ whenever I feel thatÂ everything will go wrong.Â Lead me to a total trustÂ and confidence in God.
As you surrender your will to Him,Â give me the same courageÂ to follow you.Â Let me savorÂ how it is to liveÂ in the light of GodÂ who gives meaningÂ to everything Â that happens to us.Â Guide me to understandÂ the CROSS of JESUSÂ so that my sorrowÂ will be my salvation.
Let me seeÂ the hand of GodÂ in all events of my lifeÂ so that I may alwaysÂ hope that something goodÂ will come out from the bad things that happened to me.
Accompany me, St. Michael,Â in this difficult journeyÂ to find new meaningÂ and purpose to my life.Â Light your sword in this darknessÂ so that I may seeÂ Jesus and His Mother, Mary.Â Someday, may we see each otherÂ in the bliss of heaven,Â where all tears will be wiped away.Â Amen.
