Prayer to Michael the Archangel

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio,
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae caelestis, in virtute Dei,
in infernum detrude satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo. Amen.

Holy Michael Archangel,
defend us in the day of battle;
Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him we humbly pray,
and do thou, prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God, thrust down to hell Satan
and all wicked spirits who wander through the world
for the ruin of souls. Amen.
