1 Chronicles 11:1-16

1Then all Israel gathered themselves to David unto Hebron, saying, Behold, we are thy bone and thy flesh.

2And moreover in time past, even when Saul was king, thou wast he that leddest out and broughtest in Israel: and the LORD thy God said unto thee, Thou shalt feed my people Israel, and thou shalt be ruler over my people Israel.

3Therefore came all the elders of Israel to the king to Hebron; and David made a covenant with them in Hebron before the LORD; and they anointed David king over Israel, according to the word of the LORD by Samuel.

4And David and all Israel went to Jerusalem, which is Jebus; where the Jebusites were, the inhabitants of the land.

5And the inhabitants of Jebus said to David, Thou shalt not come hither. Nevertheless David took the castle of Zion, which is the city of David.

6And David said, Whosoever smiteth the Jebusites first shall be chief and captain. So Joab the son of Zeruiah went first up, and was chief.

7And David dwelt in the castle; therefore they called it the city of David.

8And he built the city round about, even from Millo round about: and Joab repaired the rest of the city.

9So David waxed greater and greater: for the LORD of hosts was with him.

10These also are the chief of the mighty men whom David had, who strengthened themselves with him in his kingdom, and with all Israel, to make him king, according to the word of the LORD concerning Israel.

11And this is the number of the mighty men whom David had; Jashobeam, an Hachmonite, the chief of the captains: he lifted up his spear against three hundred slain by him at one time.

12And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the three mighties.

13He was with David at Pasdammim, and there the Philistines were gathered together to battle, where was a parcel of ground full of barley; and the people fled from before the Philistines.

14And they set themselves in the midst of that parcel, and delivered it, and slew the Philistines; and the LORD saved them by a great deliverance.

15Now three of the thirty captains went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the host of the Philistines encamped in the valley of Rephaim.

16And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines' garrison was then at Bethlehem.

Prayer of the Day

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

O Glorious Prince of the Heavenly Host, St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle and in the terrible battle which they are waging against the principalities and Powers of the air, against the Dominators of this dark world, against all the Spirits of Evil. in help of man, Almighty created immortal, made in the aid of man, Almighty God created immortal, made in his image and likeness, and redeemed by a great price, from the tyranny of Satan.


Fight on this day the battle of the Lord, together with the angels of the saints, like the leader of the proud angels, Lucifer, and his apostate host, who could not resist you and there was no place for them in heaven. That cruel old serpent, called the devil or Satan, who seduces the whole world, was thrown into the abyss along with his angels. Look, this primitive and murderous enemy of man has taken hold. Transformed into an angel of light, he walks around the world with a multitude of perverse spirits, invading the earth to erase the name of God and Jesus Christ, seize, murder and cast the eternal perdition of souls to the crown of eternal glory This evil dragon sheds, like the most impure flood, the venom of his malice in the men of depraved mind and corrupt heart; the lying spirit of ungodliness, of blasphemy, and of the pestilent air of impurity, and of all vice and iniquity.

These astute enemies have filled and drunk with gall and bitterness this Church, the wife of the Immaculate Lamb, and have put their unholy hands in their most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place, where the seat of St. Peter and the seat of truth have been placed as the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable wickedness, with the iniquitous design that when the Shepherd wounded by the sea, also the sheep may be injured.

Then arise, O Prince invincible, give help to the people of God against the attacks of the lost spirits. Give victory to the people of God: They worship you as their protector and patron; in you the glorious Church with the defense against the evil power of hell; God has entrusted to you the souls of men to be established in heavenly beatitudes. Pray the God of peace, that he may put Satan under our children, defeated so that he can no longer keep man in captivity and hurt the Church. To offer our prayers in the sight of the Most High, so that he may soon find mercy in the eyes of the Lord; and overcoming the dragon the ancient serpent who is the devil and Satan, you again put him captive in the abyss, so that there is no longer seduce the nations.

Amen.
