Prayer to One’s Guardian Angel

Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom his love commits me here.
Ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle,
Be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil.
We humbly beseech God to command him,
And do thou, O prince of the heavenly host,
By the divine power thrust into hell Satan
And the other evil spirits who roam through the world
Seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Psalm 23 – The Lord is my shepherd

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters;
He restores my soul.
He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil;
For you are with me;
Your rod and your staff – they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You anoint my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.

Prayer in Time of War

God our Father,
Maker and lover of peace,
To know you is to live,
And to serve you is to reign.
All our faith is in your saving help;
Protect us from men of violence
And keep us safe from weapons of hate.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

Prayer for Military Chaplains

Heavenly Father, bless and protect Military Chaplains and fill them
with the joy and courage of their vocation as personal ministers of
Christ in preaching your word and nourishing us with the Sacraments.
Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

St. Patrick’s Breastplate

May the strength of God guide me this day, and may his power preserve me.
May the wisdom of God instruct me; the eye of God watch over me; the ear of God hear me; the word of God give sweetness to my speech; the hand of God defend me; and may I follow the way of God.

Christ be with me, Christ before me,
Christ be after me, Christ within me,
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ at my right hand, Christ at my left,
Christ in the fort, Christ in the chariot,
Christ in the ship,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks to me.
Christ in every eye that sees me.
Christ in every ear that hears me.

For example: “Lord, protect me from injury” may be changed by saying,”
Lord, protect John from injury,” etc.

Our research has turned up a powerful Letter of Protection dating from 1724 which was said to safeguard the wearer from injury when worn in a pocket. This letter was reportedly discovered in Europe in 1724, written in gold lettering. It disappeared for several years but then resurfaced in 1791. It was later worn by military troops from Pennsylvania during World War I.

A Letter of Protection, to be carried in a pocket

“In the name of God the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost: As Christ stopped at the Mount of Olives, all guns shall stop. Whoever carries this letter with him he shall not be damaged through the enemy’s guns or weapons, God will give him strength; he may not fear robbers and murders, nor guns, pistols, swords and muskets shall not hurt him through the command of the Angel Michael, in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost, God with me.

Whoever has this letter shall not be taken prisoner, nor wounded by the enemy. Amen. As true as it is that Jesus Christ died and ascended to Heaven and suffered on earth he shall not be shot, but shall stand unhurt, and adjure all guns and weapons on earth by the living God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, I pray in the name of Christ’s blood that no ball shall hit me, be it gold or silver, but that God in Heaven may deliver me of all sins in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.”

End of letter

Blessed Is The Hour

Blessed is the hour in which Jesus Christ was born;
Blessed is the hour in which Jesus Christ was born;
Blessed is the hour in which Jesus Christ was born;
Blessed is the hour in which Jesus Christ has arisen from the dead;

Blessed are these three over thy gun, no shot or bullet
Shall fly toward me, and neither my skin, nor my hair,
Nor my blood, nor my flesh be injured by them,
And that no kind of weapon or metal shall do me any harm,
So surely as the Mother of God shall not bring forth another son.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, amen.

Jesus, Be With Me

In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
Jesus Christ is the true salvation; Jesus Christ governs,
Reigns, defeats and conquers every enemy, visible or invisible;

Jesus, be with me at all times, forever and ever,
Upon all roads and ways, upon the water and the land,
On the mountain and in the valley, in the house and in the yard,

In the whole world wherever I am, stand, run, ride, or drive;
Whether I sleep or wake, eat or drink,
There be thou also, Lord Jesus Christ, at all times, late and early,
Every hour, every moment; and in all my goings in or out.

Your five holy red wounds, oh Lord Jesus Christ, may they
Guard me against all firearms, be they secret or public,
That they cannot injure me or do me any harm whatever,
In the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

May Jesus Christ, with his guardianship and protection,
Shield me, , always from daily commission of sins,
Worldly injuries and injustice, from contempt, from pestilence
And other diseases, from fear, torture, and great suffering,
From all evil intentions, from false tongues and the words of fools;
And that no kind of firearms can inflict any injury to my body,
do thou take care of me.

And that no band of thieves, murderers, bombers, or evil spirits
Secretly enter my house or premises, nor break in; may the dear
Virgin Mary, and all children who are in heaven with God,
In eternal joys, protect and guard me against them;
And the glory of God the Father shall strengthen me,
The wisdom of God the Son shall enlighten me,
And the grace of God the Holy Ghost shall empower me
From this hour unto all eternity. Amen!

Joyful Corpse

The blessing which came from Heaven at the birth of Christ be with me,
. The blessing of God at the creation of the first man be with me;
the blessing of Christ on being imprisoned, bound, lashed, crowned so
dreadfully and beaten, and dying on the cross, be with me.

The blessing which
the Priest spoke over the tender, joyful corpse of our Lord Jesus Christ, be
with me; the constancy of the Holy Mary and all the saints of God, of the
three holy kings, Casper, Melchior, and Balthasar, be with me; the holy four
Evangelists, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, be with me; the Archangels St.
Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael and St. Uriel, be with me; the twelve holy
messengers of the Patriarchs and all the Hosts of Heaven, be with me; and
the inexpressible number of all the Saints be with me. Amen.

Protection from Imprisonment

O Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews, yea, a King over the whole world, protect me, , during this day and night, protect me at all times by thy five holy wounds, that I may not be seized and bound. The Holy Trinity guard me, that no gun, firearm, bullet or lead, shall touch my body; and that they shall be weak like the tears and bloody sweat of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the name of God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, amen.
