O Lord, my God, do not depart far from me.
Please look upon me and help me.
Evil thoughts have risen up against me and great fears afflict my soul.
How am I to pass on without being harmed by them?
Show me how I may crush them.
You have said, “I will go before you and will humble the great ones of the earth.
I will open the gates of the prison and will make known to you hidden secrets.”
Dear Lord, do as You say, and let all wicked thoughts and desires ﬂee before Your face.
ARCHANGEL MICHAEL: POWERFUL PRAYERS TO SAINT MICHAEL THE DEFENDER OF THE CHURCH AND CHRISTIANS
Be Informed about New Prayers, Novenas added to the blog *
Behold me, O my God, at Your feet! I do not deserve mercy, but O my Redeemer, the blood with You have shed for me encourages me and obliges me to hope for it. How often I have offended You, repented, and yet have I again fallen into the same sin. O my God, I wish to amend, and in order to be faithful to You, I will place all my confidence in You. I will, whenever I am tempted, instantly have recourse to You. Until now, I have trusted in my own promises and resolutions and have neglected to recommend myself to You in my temptations. This has been the cause of my repeated failures. From this day forward, be You, O Lord, my strength, and this shall I be able to do all things, for ???I can do all things in Him who strengthens me.???
Almighty and most Merciful God, graciously hearken unto our prayers; and free our hearts from the temptations of evil thoughts; that we may worthily become a fit habitation for Thy Holy Spirit.
