WHAM! Just when you sit back and realize that life has been pretty smooth for the most part and that spiritually, while not ‘on fire’, things are simmering along; and you start to feel good that maybe you made it through the battle with wounds that are healing well — WHAM! Right between the eyes! and it starts all over again.
Maybe when my vision clears enough to see the computer monitor clearly, I might be able to say more. But, that time isn’t now. Now is the time for prayer. Serious prayer. Please.
For those how have fought for loved ones as they battle the devil, please keep us in prayer. The battle continues and is growing. Just as we think we have overcome the hurdles for one, it pops up in another. This time and this culture seriously makes me want to take my family and move to a hermitage away from all of it.
So, please pray with me…
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen..
O glorious prince St. Michael, chief and commander of the heavenly hosts,
guardian of souls, vanquisher of rebel spirits, servant in the house of the Divine King
and our admirable conductor, you who shine with excellence
and superhuman virtue deliver us from all evil,who turn to you with confidence and enable us by your gracious protection to serve God more and more faithfully every day.
