Prayer for the American Bishops
O King of Kings and Shepherd of Souls,
unto whom all powers and principalities are subject,
take pity on your flock, threatened by those who seek
the destruction of the holy influence and converting power
of the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Help of Christians,
and the prayers of all Your martyred bishops,
may the Holy Spirit descend in power
and fill our earthly shepherds, the American bishops,
with wisdom, courage, and unwavering zeal
to defend their Bride, Holy Mother Church,
the truth of her teachings, the integrity of her sacraments
and our God-given right to freely practice our religion.

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend them!
Cast the father of lies into the pit of hell.
By thy Holy and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, deliver us from evil.
Crush the head of the serpent that is attempting to devour our country.
