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.


St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in the day of battle;
Be our safeguard against
the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray.
O prince of the heavenly host,
by the power of God cast into hell,
Satan and all the other evil spirits,
who prowl through the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen


O Prince of the heavenly host, Saint Michael,
thou who cast into hell proud Lucifer with all his followers,
 thou who art defender and protector of the Church,
thou who art protector of souls departing from this world,
come to the aid of the People of God
and defend the Church committed unto thee against all the snares of Satan.
Help my soul which I now commend to thee a
gainst this same enemy.
Protect me especially at the hour of my death,
so that I may be admitted to the joys of paradise
where I, with all the angels,
may praise God eternally. Amen.


Christ, the fair glory of the holy Angels,
thou who hast made us, thou who o'er us rulest,
grant of thy mercy unto us thy servants
steps up to heaven.

Send thy Archangel, Michael, to our succor;
Peacemaker blessed, may he banish from us
striving and hatred, so that for the peaceful all
things may prosper.

Send thy Archangel, Gabriel, the mighty,
herald of heaven; may he from us mortals
spurn the old serpent, watching o'er the temples
where thou art worshiped.

Send thy Archangel, Raphael, the restorer
of the misguided ways of men who wander,
who at thy biding strengthens soul and body
with thine anointing.

May the blest Mother of our God and Savior,
may the assembly of the Saints in glory,
may the celestial companies of Angels
ever assist us.

This he vouchsafe us, God forever blessed,
Father eternal, Son, and Holy Spirit,
whose is the glory which through all creation
ever resoundeth. Amen.

V. In the sight of the angels I will praise you O God.
R. I will worship at your holy temple and confess your holy name.

Let us pray

God our Father,
in a wonderful way you guide the work of angels and men.
May those who serve you constantly in heaven
keep our lives safe from all harm on earth.
Grant this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


O holy angel of God,
minister of heavenly power,
whom almighty God appointed as my guardian,
through His majesty and devotion I humbly beg you
to guard my body, soul, and all my senses
from perverse and illicit desires,
from hurtful, vain, and impure thoughts,
from the illusions of evil spirits,
from the pollution of mind and body,
and from the snares of my visible and invisible enemies seeking my soul.
Be my watchful protector wherever I may go,
night and day, every hour and every moment,
and preserve me in pure works.
Strengthen me with holy desires
in the fear and love of Jesus Christ.
And after this earthly life,
lead my soul to eternal happiness;
where with all God’s saints it may rejoice without end;
and praise the Triune God
to whom be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen


O angelic Spirit,
most attentive guide in this life,
I thank you from all my heart for all the love and confidence
with which you have treated me till now.
Be patient with my inconsistency
for I often do not follow your holy counsels
and by my disobedience have caused you great and bitter sorrow.
Drive away from me by the power of the Cross
every temptation of Satan,
and those which my own merits do not extinguish,
repel by your prayers with God.
In whatever tribulation or difficulty you see me,
may I feel the help of almighty God to be present
by your prayer and protection.
Today I commend to you forever
my body, my heart, and my soul,
my memory, my intellect and my will,
my passions and my feelings,
that you would guard me, direct me, and rule me,
and at the same time purify, illuminate and perfect me,
so that filled with every good through you,
I may persevere in grace until with you
 I will come to see my God
and live in blessedness in his glory. Amen.


Creator of the circling sky,
Who didst make all by power most high,
thy Providence will never cease
to rule thy works in might and peace.

Be present when we cry to thee,
a sinful people though we be;
and as the day-dawn grows apace,
illume our minds with light of grace.

O send thine Angel thitherward
assigned by thee to be our guard,
that now his presence may begin
to keep us from all stain of sin.

Let him destroy that hidden snare
the eager serpent doth prepare,
lest we be taken in the net
before our heedless bosoms set.

At his command let every fear
of hostile foemen disappear;
let civil strife give way to peace,
and pestilence and famine cease.

To God the Father glory be;
for those the Savior setteth free,
anointed by the Holy Ghost,
are guarded by the Angel host. Amen.

V. God gave his angels charge over you
R. To protect you in all your ways

Let us pray

God our Father,
in your loving providence
you send your holy angels to watch over us.
Hear our prayers,
defend us always by their protection
and let us share your life with them for ever.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. R. Amen.
