Angel of God
Angel of God, my guardian dear, to whom His love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side, to light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen
Prayer to One's Guardian Angel
Dear Angel, in His goodness God gave you to me to guide, protect,
and enlighten me, and to bring me back to the right way when I go astray.
Encourage me when I am disheartened, and instruct me when I err in judgment.
Help me to become more Christlike, and so some day to be accepted into the company of
Angels and Saints
in heaven. Amen
PRAYER TO SAINT MICHAEL
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our defense
against the wickedness and snares of the devil; may God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do
thou O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the divine power, thrust into hell Satan and all
the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
A PRAYER TO THE HOLY GUARDIAN
(Feast, October 2)
DEAR Angel at my side, my good and loyal friend, you
have been with me since the moment I was born. You
are my own personal guardian, given me by God as my
guide and protector, and you will stay with me till I die.
He who created you and me gave me to you as your
particular charge. You assisted in great joy at my
baptism, when I became part of the Mystical Body of
Christ, and was made a member of the household of
God and an heir of heaven. You saw the dangers that
beset my path, and, if I sinned, it was in spite of you.
You envied me when Christ came to me in Holy
Communion. Even though you probably were there
among the angels that adored Him the night that He
was born, you have not been able to receive Him as I
can. O, help me to appreciate these gifts! Help me to
realize, as you do, with every fiber of my being, that to
serve Christ is to be a King! Help me steadfastly to
avoid evil and do good and always guard my soul from
sin. Protect me as well from physical evils as I go about
my daily work. You will be with me all my life, and at the hour of my death. Help me to
face death bravely,
patiently, with great love of God, knowing that it is only
through death that I can come to Him in heaven! Then,
come with me to my Judge, and when the hour of my
salvation comes, take me home to my Father, God.
