Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel traslate by Ann Wood

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
Holy and Great Archangel of God, Mihaile, the first of the angels in the forefront of the unknown and eternal Trinity, protector and guardian of the human race!
You who, with your armies, broke the head of the pregnant Dwarf in Heaven, and you always confound his malice and cunning on the earth! To you we resort to faith, and to you we pray with love:
Be an indestructible defense and a strong defender of the holy Church and our Orthodox Fatherland by encircling them with your lightning sword from all visible and invisible enemies.
Be a guardian angel, a wise witness and helper of the godly and Orthodox Bulgarian people; bring him from the king's throne over the kings, enlightenment and strength, joy, peace, and comfort.
Be an invincible leader and guardian of our charitable army; crown him with glory, and overcome the enemies, that all who rebel against us may know that God and His holy angels are with us.
Do not leave, O Archangel of God without your help and protection, and we who glorify today your name. For, behold, though we are very sinful, we do not want to perish in our iniquities, but to turn to the Lord and to be animated by Him for good deeds.
So, illuminate our mind with the light of God's face, which always shines on your lightning forehead, so that we can understand what is the good and perfect will of God and know what we are doing and what we despise and leave .
Strengthen with the grace of God our weak will and desire, confirmed in the law of the Lord, to cease to be influenced by earthly thoughts and carnal wishes, entangled, as the foolish children, by the fast-moving beauties of this world that because of the corruptible and the earthly, foolish to forget the eternal and the heavenly.
But first of all, ask us from above the spirit of true repentance, unfeigned sorrow for God and the breaking of our sins, and so live the rest of our temporary life, not for the sake of our feelings and for the bondage of passions, but to smooth everything , badly done by us through the tears of faith and heartbreak, through the holy works of mercy.
When our hour has come to an end and our deliverance from the bonds with this body of body, do not leave us, Archangel of God, defenseless against the underworld spirits of malice that bar the way of the human soul to the sky, but preserved by you, unhindered to reach those glorious homes of paradise, where there is no grief, no sighs, but endless life.
Therefore, being honored to see the light-filled face of our Lord and Master all our loving kindness, let us fall with tears at His feet, and joyfully with delight say, Glory to Thee, send us our Redeemer who, because of His great love for us, unworthy, to send your angels to serve us in our salvation.
