Pope Francis has asked Catholics around the world to pray the following prayers daily throughout the month of October: the Rosary, the St. Michael Prayer, and the Sub Tuum Praesidium (this is one of the most ancient Marian prayers, dating back to the 3rd century). Please find these prayers below.
ST. MICHAEL PRAYER
St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
SUB TUUM PRAESIDIUM
We fly to thy protection, O holy Mother of God, despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
