How do you pray? (part two)

As promised in yesterday’s post, today’s will provide anyone interested with some more common prayers I’ve learned from the Catholic faith. I mentioned this yesterday, but the fact that these prayers have a Catholic affiliation does not mean they can only be recited by Catholics. Prayer is universal, and be practiced by everyone, regardless of what your religious or spiritual beliefs happen to be, and regardless of their origin. We may differ in terms of beliefs and values, but prayer is something we all have in common in terms of it being how we communicate with who and what we believe in.

Here are some more prayers for anyone seeking inspiration:

Saint Michael the Archangel

Saint Michael the Archangel,

Defend us in battle

Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil

May God rebuke him, we humbly pray

And do thou, prince of the Heavenly Host,

And the divine power of God,

Cast into Hell Satan and all of the evil spirits

Who roam throughout the world, seeking the ruin of souls


The Apostle’s Creed

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, creator of heaven and Earth

I believe in Jesus Christ, his only son, our Lord,

Who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary

He suffered under Pontius Pilot, died, and was buried

He descended into Hell

On the third day, he rose from the dead

He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father Almighty,

From there he will come to judge the living and the dead

I believe in the Holy Spirit,

The Holy Catholic church,

The communion of saints,

The forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the body, and life everlasting,


Happy prayers, my friends. Keep up the good work.
