St. Michael the Archangel is honored as the angel who fought Satan in the battle described in the book of Revelation (20:1-3). Because of this, he has been named the patron saint of those in the military and police force. Many people make a daily practice of praying the “Saint Michael Prayer,” which asks St. Michael to be a defender and protector. You can find the this prayer on our About St Michael the Archangel page.
