Pray for me


#1

Please pray for me.

I’ve been experiencing some deep darkness of the soul lately, feeling very spiritually dry, and the temptations to do the wrong thing sometimes creep up on me as the best thing to do!

Pray that I’ll make it through this time without offending our Lord too grievously.


#2

Praying for you! :crossrc:

I’ve been there many times, I know its hard and painful. Hang in there. :console: Remember, it is when God feels farthest away from us, it is THEN that He is actually the closest to us! :slight_smile:

God bless you and Mary keep you!

May the Holy Spirit descend upon you and strengthen you with the Divine Perseverance.

I will pray for you, Epistemes!

I also found this Chaplet which I hope will help.

The Chaplet of St. Michael

On the St. Michael medallion
O God, come to my assistance.
O Lord, make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father, etc.

On the 4 next beads
Say one Our Father in honor of each of the following leading Angels:
St. Michael
St. Gabriel
St. Raphael
our Guardian Angel.

The rest of the Chaplet
[Say one Our Father and three Hail Marys after each of the following nine salutations in honor of the nine Choirs of Angels]

  1. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Seraphim may the Lord make us worthy to burn with the fire of perfect charity.
    Amen.

  2. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Cherubim may the Lord grant us the grace to leave the ways of sin and run in the paths of Christian perfection.
    Amen.

  3. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Thrones may the Lord infuse into our hearts a true and sincere spirit of humility.
    Amen.

  4. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Dominions may the Lord give us grace to govern our senses and overcome any unruly passions.
    Amen.

  5. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Powers may the Lord protect our souls against the snares and temptations of the devil.
    Amen.

  6. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Virtues may the Lord preserve us from evil and falling into temptation. Amen.

  7. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Principalities may God fill our souls with a true spirit of obedience. Amen.

  8. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Archangels may the Lord give us perseverance in faith and in all good works in order that we may attain the glory of Heaven.
    Amen.

  9. By the intercession of St. Michael and the celestial Choir of Angels may the Lord grant us to be protected by them in this mortal life and conducted in the life to come to Heaven.
    Amen.

Concluding prayers:

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.

Pray for us, O glorious St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ, that we may be made worthy of His promises.

Almighty and Everlasting God, Who, by a prodigy of goodness and a merciful desire for the salvation of all men, has appointed the most glorious Archangel St. Michael Prince of Your Church, make us worthy, we ask You, to be delivered from all our enemies, that none of them may harass us at the hour of death, but that we may be conducted by him into Your Presence.This we ask through the merits of
Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
