Never Failing Prayer To St. Michael

Archangel Saint Michael

St. Michael in Triumph

Disclaimer: I am convinced that the archangel St. Michael not only exists, but is an immensely powerful and active protective force.

Whether this is “just in my mind” or not, I can tell you I could care less because, as they say, “the proof is in the pudding.”

My life was spared three times. (I was a slow learner.)

How do I know it was St. Michael? I don’t, in that I can’t prove it to anyone else.

However, too many coincidences (along with a resonance in my heart and gut) tell me it was  St. Michael who saved me in each instance.

Now, my conceit says that I was saved so I could write Prayerforce and these little blog posts.

Hah! It’s far more likely that I was spared because I wouldn’t learn my lessons if I died – plus I had a divine appointment to meet the man who would become my husband, to end his loneliness.


The prayer below comes from a woman who built St. Michael a shrine in Tarpon Springs, Florida.

Located at the corner of Grand and Hope, (Grand Hope – no coincidence there) the chapel serves as a living  reminder that prayers are answered. (If you visit, it’s the Shrine of Saint Michael Taxiarchis, 113 Hope Street, Tarpon Springs, FL.)

In 1939, Maria Tsalichi’s young son Steve was gravely ill. He had fallen into a coma and was expected to die.

Maria reported, afterwards, that her son had awoken and spoken (she thought he was delirious) to say, “Yes, but my mother has no money,” and then to her: “Taxiarchis (the archangel St. Michael) wants you to build his shrine.”

As this conversation continued, Maria realized that her son’s words were coming from another place and promised to build the shrine. After her son recovered she kept her promise, although it took a lot of faith and perseverence since she was not a wealthy woman.

If you are ever in the vicinity, stop by. Light a candle, and settle into stillness. See if you can feel the singing vibration that lives there. I fall into it so deeply that I can sit there for fifty minutes in meditation (despite Florida heat and only overhead fans going) and the time flies. I come away renewed, restored and grateful.


Note that this ritual calls for you to light a candle in the chapel once a week for nine weeks. However, you need not go to Tarpon Springs for it to be effective. You can visit your own place of worship, light a candle and follow the directions there, since God and St. Michael are everywhere you believe them to be.

So what if your normal “place of worship” is in your own home?

Well, let me clarify that this is not like one of those terrible e-mails we have all gotten that gives you (what can be) a lovely image of Jesus or a prayer and then implies that if you “follow the rules” and “pass it on” you will experience some blessing (like winning the lottery) but if you just delete it you will be struck by tragedy.

No matter how lovely the prayer or image, I delete those e-mails without sending them on, because that threatening message is toxic.

All you really need do is reverently say the prayer below every day for nine weeks.

Should it feel sacred and strengthening to visit a place of worship each Tuesday (for nine successive Tuesdays) to light a candle and leave a copy of the prayer for some other person to find, then do so, by all means.

Just don’t do it out of superstition, fear or resentful obligation.

St. Michael is God’s servant and wants to help you. All you need bring to him is a sincere and willing heart, although gratitude is always a plus, and joy is a good gift to bring him as well, if you can manage it.

However, just come as you are, be yourself, and do your best to make the moment meaningful. If you can feel as though you are communicating with the divine in a sacred moment, it doesn’t matter where you are.

People have experienced miracles, healing and revelation in jail and in the gutter. So wherever you are, and whatever you offer of yourself, is enough.

Now, finally, the prayer –


St. Michael, I resort to your protection and, in my faith, offer this light which shall burn every Tuesday.

Comfort me in my difficulties and though lodging in the house of our savior, intercede for me and my family that we will be able to hold God close to our hearts and be provided for in all of our necessities.

I beseech you to have infinite pity in regard to the favours I ask of you (name them), that I may be able to overcome all difficulties as you did the dragon at your feet.


Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb – Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen.


Our Father, who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.


Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, World without End. Amen.

This prayer is to be said for nine (9) Tuesdays in succession, and each Tuesday a candle shall be lighted and a copy of this prayer left in the church to help another soul in distress and support the devotion to St. Michael.

This miraculous Saint grants everything, no matter how difficult, and before the termination of the nine (9) weeks of Wednesdays.

Please show me the right path, and the truth about many trying and confusing situations in our lives.

My wife and I are going through an extremely difficult time facing serious legal problems. We are been charged with serious accusations which could have devastating consequences, including prison. We pray for these legal problems to be resolved in our favor for once and for all and for her and I to return to having a peaceful, happy life alongside our daughter.

I’m in need of some prayer healing by Saint Michael over the loss of my boyfriend who I had to leave and still miss, Saint Michael please bring Mike back through reconciliation and if not someone better. God knows the desires of my heart.

Please pray for me and my family to receive a spouse whom will love, cherish, honor, provide and be loyal to us. In Jesus name I ask for gods grace and mercy to be shown to me and my family. I have been lonely for a while and I am deserving of true love a man whom will protect, provide for me and my family and profess his love for me always. I hope this man is jl but only God knows his true heart and intentions. I pray that if it is him that God reveal my love for him and he reveal his love to me as soon as possible. So we may start a wonderful loving friendship and meaningful love relationship. Amen

Ah, Rue, life – including my grandchildren – tends to occupy me. I notice, also, that I get many of the same questions – about lost love and financial problems – over and over; so am trusting that those who will benefit from my advice will find those relevant posts easily, and that advice written to others will help them as well.

The answers are are all in you and if you do not find what you need to understand your own wisdom on one site, another source will appear. Have faith, for you are meant to be happy.

Much love,

what if I miss my prayer on Tuesday? Can I still do my prayer on Wednesday and light my candle? Or should I start over on my nine Tuesday prayers.

9 Rebecca { 11.04.15 at }

I’m doing the 9 weeks prayer, and I missed Tuesday is it ok to follow up on Wednesday? or do I start over?

Dear Rebecca – Every prayer is answered immediately. That is, the vibrational energy blueprint for the solution is immediately created. The person asking for the solution must then believe that the answer/solution is on its way and resist all temptation to doubt that the answer is coming or question his or her worthiness to receive it.

Since the answer has been given, all prayers such as this one to St. Michael have one function and it is to create belief and trust in the supplicant that what has been asked for is absolutely coming.

So consider how you feel. Do you fear that by missing a day you have “blown” it and must start over? Or that God will be displeased or disappointed with you? If you have those fears, perhaps the best thing to do is start the process over with a new prayer, a prayer that you will feel the love that God has for you, and that whatever you ask for is given without jumping through any hoops.

You are not meant to jump through hoops for God.

Your work is to deliberately lift your own thoughts and emotions into a state of belief that you deserve all good things – including the answer to all your prayers – and that those things are unfolding for you.

Affirm that you can trust yourself. Affirm that the process is for you, and however you do it – as long as it has meaning for you – it will work.

Realize your worthiness; realize that God is trying to bring you what you desire; realize that you are doing nothing wrong because you are perfect in God’s eyes.

Whatever it takes for you to feel these truths, do it.

Whatever helps you to believe, do that.

So do this process in a way that helps you believe.

But I will tell you that time and space mean nothing to God. There is no judgment of you. You cannot do it wrong for God. You can only judge yourself as doing it wrong.

If you feel good about the process – however and whenever you do it – and you feel God is powerfully present through it and helping you, then that is all that matters.

Believe what you want is coming and it will come. Your work is to have faith. God will do the rest.


been answered. What keeps the manifestation from appearing is align yourself with it, so that you believed absolutely that you were This ritual is to convince YOU into a state of belief that God has answered your prayer and the manifestation is coming.

I visited the shrine over Thanksgiving. It was so peaceful and lovely. While sitting there after everyone left, I heard someone call my name, but no one was there. I felt much calmer after that moment.

15 Tracy { 12.18.15 at }

Dearest St Michael please pray for the restoration of my marriage.

16 Clyo Beck { 12.29.15 at }

Dearest Rebecca –

Do what feels best to you. You have a direct connection to Source.
God doesn’t judge you if you miss a day, you judge yourself if you
miss a day. If you can feel good about just going on and doing your
prayer on Wednesday, then go ahead. If you feel that you are not doing
it “right” by skipping Tuesday and speaking the prayer on Wednesday,
then start over.

Much love,
