The Orthodox Church celebrates the feast of St. Michael the Archangel on this day. It also happens to be my husband, Michael's, birthday. St. Michael is one of the Archangels mentioned in Scripture (Dan 10:13, 21)(Rev. 12:7). His name, in Hebrew: מיכאל, Micha'el or Mîkhā’ēl; Greek: Μιχαήλ, Mikhaíl; Latin: Michael or Míchaël; Arabic: ميكائيل, Mikha'il, means "Who is like God" and his role is seen as the protector of Israel and of the Church.
St. Michael is a powerful protector and the prayer to St.Michael can be a powerful one when you are feeling under attack.
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
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 Divine Power of God —
cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
