It is in the spirit of that humility that we ask for your intercession for our petitions (state your request).

Archangel Michael, defend us in battle and be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, 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.
