“A Prayer to St. Michael, The Arch Angel” copyright 2009 by John J. Rigo, upcoming “Passion Amidst Apathy”
Saint Michael the Arch Angel I come before you a soul made in the image of our God and Lord. Forgive this human form that I bring before you which is but the temporary host of my soul. I humbly ask you to be my Defender in overcoming the temptations of the Devil that approach me each day from my physical life on this earth. Protect me and defend me so that I may bring greater glory and worship to my God and Lord. When death finally releases me from this world be at my side as I approach the Lord of my future home. I render you all my praise and joy in His name. Oh Protector that I wear about my neck each day in rememberance of my prayer to you keep me ever mindful of God’s Love for me.
