Spiritual Armor Prayer

St. Michael
St. Michael the Archangel, Holy Sepulcher Cemetery


Heavenly Father, we ask You today
for Your truth as a belt tight around
our loins.

We put on the zeal to announce your good news of peace as shoes
for our feet.

We put on Your righteousness,
O Christ, as our breastplate,

And the hope of salvation as
a helmet for our head.

Father, we take up faith as a shield
which is able to put out all the fiery
darts of the enemy.

And the sword of the Spirit, which
is Your Word, O Lord.

Father, may the love with which you
have loved Jesus be in us, and may
Jesus be in us.

We ask You for the grace of a
servant heart.

Amen.

- from a holy card.

The Archangel Michael is my Patron Saint, thank you for this (our commemoration isn't until early November, though)
