O My Guardian Angel

Angel of God’s light,

whom God sends as a companion for me on earth,

protect me from the snares of the devil,

and help me to walk always as a child of God, my Creator.


Angel of God’s truth,

whose perfect knowledge serves what is true,

protect me from deceits and temptations.

Help me to know the truth,

and always to live the truth.


Angel of God’s love,

who praises Jesus Christ,

the only Son of God,

who sacrificed His life for love of us;

sustain me as I learn the ways of Divine love,

of sacrificial generosity,

of meekness and lowliness of heart.


Thank You, my heavenly friend,

for your watch full care.

At the moment of my death,

bring me to heaven,

where the one true God,

Who is light, Truth and Love,

lives and reigns forever and ever. Amen.



Prayer to My Guardian Angel

O Guardian Angel, most Faithful companion, appointed by God to be my guide and protector, and who art ever at my side, what thanks can I offer thee for thy faithfulness and love, and for all the benefits which thou hast conferred upon me? Thou watchest over me in sleep; thou consolest me when I am sad; thou liftest me up when I fall; thou avertest the dangers that threaten me; thou preparest me for the future; thou withdrawest me from evil and excitest me to good; thou exhortest me to penance when I yield to temptation; and reconcilest me to my offended God. Long since should I have been cast into hell, unless by thy prayers thou hadst averted from me the anger of God. Leave me not, then, I entreat thee; but still comfort me in adversity, restrain me in prosperity, defend me in danger, assist me in temptations, lest at any time I fall a victim to them. Offer to God my tears, my prayers and groanings, and all my religious exercises, and obtain for me the great gift of final perseverance, and the grace to die in the friendship of my Creator, and so to enter into life everlasting. Amen.
