(You can pray this chaplet on the beads of three-and-one, St Michael Chaplet beads, or on your fingers.)
On the medal:
V. O God, come to my assistance.
R. O Lord, make haste to help me.
– Glory be to the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Before each salutation, recite one Our Father on the individual bead and three Hail Mary’s on the three beads grouped together, in honour of the corresponding Choir of Angels; leave the set of four beads until the end.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of the SERAPHIM, may it please God to make us worthy to receive into our hearts the fire of His perfect charity. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of the CHERUBIM, may God grant us the grace to abandon the ways of sin and follow the path of Christian perfection. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of the THRONES, may it please God to infuse into our hearts a true and earnest spirit of humility. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of DOMINATIONS, may it please God to grant us the grace to have dominion over our senses and to correct our depraved passions. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of the POWERS, may God vouchsafe to keep our souls from the wiles and temptations of the devil. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the choir of the admirable celestial VIRTUES, may Our Lord keep us from falling into temptation and deliver us from evil. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of the PRINCIPALITIES, may it please God to fill our hearts with the spirit of true and hearty obedience. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of ARCHANGELS, may it please God to grant us the gift of perseverance in the Faith and in all good works, that we may thereby be enabled to attain unto the glory of Paradise. Amen.
At the intercession of St Michael and the heavenly choir of holy ANGELS, may God vouchsafe to grant that they may protect us during life, and after death may lead us into the everlasting glory of Heaven. Amen.
Then say the Our Father on each of the four remaining beads: the first in honour of St Michael, the second in honour of St Gabriel, the third in honour of St Raphael, and the fourth in honour of your Guardian Angel.
End as follows:
St Michael, glorious Prince, Chief and Champion of the Heavenly Host, guardian of the souls of men, conqueror of the rebel angels, steward of the palace of God under Jesus Christ, our worthy leader, endowed with superhuman excellence and virtue: free us from every ill, who with full confidence have recourse to thee; and by thine incomparable protection, enable us to make progress every day in the faithful service of our God. Amen.
V. Pray for us, most blessed Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ.
R. That we may be made worthy of His promises.
Let us pray:
Almighty and eternal God, who in thine own marvelous goodness and pity didst, for the common salvation of men, choose the glorious Archangel Michael to be Prince of thy Church, make us worthy, we pray thee, to be delivered by his beneficent protection from all our enemies, that at the hour of our death, none of them may approach to harm us; rather, grant by the same Archangel Michael that we may be introduced into the presence of thy Most High and Divine Majesty. Through the merits of the same Jesus Christ Our Lord.
