St Michael, through the power of God, is singularly qualified to take care of the devil and his demons. Pray the prayer anytime you feel you are in danger or if you feel particularly oppressed by evil influence. Pray this prayer when you are faced with temptations of sins against purity. You can be sure the devil will flee if you beg St Michael for his intercession. Pray the St Michael prayer, when your kids are being rebellious, and have abandoned God. Pray this prayer when your marriage is in trouble or when you are feeling depressed.
As Catholics, we have resource to the Saints who will intercede for us if we but ask. As powerful an angel as St Michael is he is also, tender and ready to fight Satan and his minions on behalf of God’s people.
We can’t fight the devil alone, as we are only human, but with God’s help and the intercession of St Michael, we can overcome any influence from the devil.
