“Saint Michael the Archangel, defend me in the day of battle and be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil, Satan, and all other evil spirits, who prowl through the world, seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.” Saint Michaels purpose is to fight against all evils and protect the souls of man against the devil. He is often pictured with a sword fighting a winged dragon, this relates to his mention in the New Testament. The many miracles of Saint Michael are celebrated each year on his feast day of September 29th. A prayer is said before the candle as it burns. When the candle is first lit this prayer is to ask for what you desire or what help is needed in your life.

Prayer is the master key. A key must fit one door of a house, but when it fit all doors it may well laid to be the master key. Such and no less a key is prayer to all earthy problems. Prayer is an art and requires practice. Praying is more than just mere words, it myst come from deep within you, from you very soul. Prayer must be felt just as you feel coolness or warmth. Just as you are affected by other senses, such as taste, smell, healing, etc. The exercise of prayer requires tranquility and peace of mind. The essence of prayer is faith, it is your motive power that comes from within you and its movement must be directed upwards to where all earthy favors come from. Anyone can make their prayers come true. This is as sure as the rise of tomorrow’s sun. A prayer will not come true simply by mouthing words, a lot depends on your mental attitude, faith, and sincerity of your praying. If you knew how you would feel if your prayer were answered, and if you could realize, consciously, just how you could awaken such a feeling in yourself, you will travel a long way toward learning how to make your dreams come true. Imagination is the beginning of creation. You must imagine what you desire and believe it to be true. Try to feel the force of your praying. True prayer can come only from within yourself.
