Praying for protection against evil

Published: Saturday, May 10, 2014 1:15 a.m. CST

Quite often you hear of different church communities who pray for protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. Those of faith intercede the power of St. Michael, the Archangel, to defend us in battle with Satan and his accomplices here on earth.

The mayor of Chicago, his chief of police, and all the cops on foot, bikes and horseback and in squad cars are not enough to control or conquer the evil foe who prowls the world seeking cohorts to destroy and kill innocent, good and righteous people – the elderly, parents, youths, children and infants.

We pray that God will rebuke Satan and all evil. We pray that St. Michael, the Archangel, will do battle for us against the wickedness of Satan and the evil workings in the world.
