Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel
Saint Michael the Archangel is recognized in Christianity for being the guardian and protector of God's church and people. With those words in mind, the following biblical prophecy is connected to our current time: "At that time there shall arise Michael, the great prince, guardian of your people; It shall be a time unsurpassed in distress since nations began until that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone whose name shall be found written in the book. But the wise shall shine brightly like the splendor of the firmament, And those who lead the many to justice shall be like the stars forever. As for you Daniel, keep secret the message and seal the book until the end time; many shall fall away and evil shall increase." Daniel 12:1,3-4
In Revelation 12:7-8 the following is noted: "Then war broke out in heaven; Michael and his angels battled against the dragon. The dragon and its angels fought back, but they did not prevail and there was no longer any place for them in heaven."
The violence in the middle east and break down of law and order in nations can also be attributed to a spiritual realm being manifested through forces of darkness, which in turn is influencing the irrational behavior of society. Scripture says: "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour." 1Peter 5:8
Trust in God and pray; He will answer and deliver you from adversaries with His perfect timing.

The following excerpt from Wikipedia the free Encyclopedia is regarding the Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel:
"May prayer strengthen us for the spiritual battle that the Letter to the Ephesians speaks of: 'Be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might' (Ephesians 6:10). The Book of Revelation refers to this same battle, recalling before our eyes the image of St Michael the Archangel (cf. Revelation 12:7). Pope Leo XIII certainly had this picture in mind when, at the end of the last century, he brought in, throughout the Church, a special prayer to St Michael: 'Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil...' Although this prayer is no longer recited at the end of Mass, I ask everyone not to forget it and to recite it to obtain help in the battle against the forces of darkness and against the spirit of this world."
Regarding intercessory prayers to angels and saints, scripture says the following: And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand. Revelation 8:3-4 (KJV)
Angels and saints both intercede before the throne of God on behalf of all who pray for the Lord's assistance.

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL
Oh most Noble Prince of the Angelic Hierarchies
valorous warrior of Almighty God,
and zealous lover of His glory,
terror of the rebellious angels,
and love and delight of all the just ones,
my beloved Archangel Saint Michael,
desiring to be numbered among your devoted servants,
I, today offer and consecrate myself to you,
and place myself, my family,
and all I possess under your most powerful protection.
I entreat you not to look at how little, I,
as your servant have to offer,
being only a wretched sinner,
but to gaze, rather,
with favorable eve at the heartfelt affection
with which this offering is made,
and remember that if from this day onward
I am under your patronage,
you must during all my life assist me,
and procure for me the pardon of my many grievous offenses, and sins, the grace to love with all my heart my God,
my dear Saviour Jesus and my Sweet Mother Mary,
and obtain for me all the help necessary to arrive to my crown of glory.
Defend me always from my spiritual enemies,
particularly in the last moments of my life.
Come then oh Glorious Prince and succour me in my last struggle,
and with your powerful weapon cast far from me into the infernal abysses that prevaricator and proud angel that one day you prostrated in the celestial battle.
Saint Michael, defend us in our daily battle

On February 26, 2015, I received a spiritual locution/message from Our Blessed Mother regarding the violence being seen and reported by news services throughout the world, especially in the Middle East.
Through prayerful discernment, Our Lady is requesting that our Holy Father, Pope Francis - consecrate our world to Saint Michael the Archangel's protection. Through prayer and the intercession of Our Lady and St. Michael the Archangel - Our Lord Jesus will mitigate lawlessness and violence in nations. I believe this will help to move forward and hasten the era of peace as promised by Our Lady of Fatima.
(Note: This consecration requires not only our Pope, but the participation of clergy and church parishes as well.)
On July 5, 2013, Pope Francis consecrated Vatican City to St. Michael the Archangel's protection and to St. Joseph. Pope Francis said, "In consecrating Vatican City State to St. Michael the Archangel, I ask him to defend us from the evil one and banish him."
Scripture says the following regarding God's reign of peace: Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years, and threw him into the pit, and locked and sealed it over him, so that he would deceive the nations no more, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be let out for a little while. Revelation 20:1-3
In addition, I believe it's important for all church parishes to begin reciting the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel either before or after mass. Recite the prayer with your families and for our world. God will answer our prayers with his perfect timing.
I've shared this locution with my spiritual advisor, Fr. Richard Tartaglia of Saint Mary's Church, Denville, NJ, USA.

By Loci B. Lenar
Message from Jesus: “My Father’s timing to fulfill Revelation 20:1-3 has arrived.”
On Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday of 2015, I received the following message from Jesus through a locution. Our Lord communicated: “My Father’s Will is to mitigate apocalyptic events, suddenly it will happen.” Jesus made reference to Our Heavenly Father’s timing in fulfilling Revelation 20:1-3 with a thousand year reign of peace.
Jesus connected His communication to Our Lady’s message that I had received in a spiritual locution on February 26, 2015. Our Lady’s communication said: "Consecrate the world to Saint Michael the Archangel's protection," and made reference to the violence in our world including the chaos in the Middle East.
In my locution, Jesus went on with His announcement and said, “Therefore, consecrate the world to Michael the Archangel’s protection in accordance with Revelation 20:1-3 to accelerate and move forward with a millennium of peace.”
Our Lord made reference to scripture and Revelation 20:1-3, “I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.” This scripture is connected to St. Michael the Archangel and his work in successfully completing God’s plan for world peace. In fulfilling this scripture, Our Lady of Fatima’s promise for world peace is accomplished.
In addition, Jesus indicated the process of consecration: The Holy Father (Our Pope) with church parishes and clergy are to join in prayer concurrently to consecrate the world to Michael the Archangel’s protection in accordance with Revelation 20:1-3; Hence, fulfilling scripture and the Word of God. Jesus communicated, “I Will mitigate apocalyptic events, lawlessness, violence, and persecution of the faithful - suddenly it will happen.”
Jesus than made a direct comparison to Pope John Paul II and his action in consecrating Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25, 1984, in St. Peter’s Square, Rome. This was done in accordance with Our Lady of Fatima's request. Shortly after, the Berlin Wall came down and the Soviet Union/Russia broke up with the fall of communism. Suddenly it happened!
There’s an additional scripture which also holds true to our current time: "At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people - everyone whose name is found in the book - will be delivered." (Daniel 12:1)
This message is of great importance and must not be disregarded!
May the Holy Spirit be a guiding light for God's church and His people.
Please pray for the fulfillment of Revelation 20:1-3 in our time. Thank you very much for your prayer support.
