Each of us has a guardian angel who watches over us.  This day celebrates our protectors and they pray for us. They know us well and are aware of what tempts us. They see how we use our gifts. Our angels can help us grow closer to God.

These angels are also an example of God’s mercy. Everyone has a guardian angel, even people who don’t believe in God. And even the people we don’t get along with!

Guardian Angel Prayer

This traditional prayer is something we teach young children, but it is a wonderful prayer for Christians of all ages. Praying it connects us with our guardian angel who is always with us, watching over us. Guardian angels can help us focus in meditation, guide us, and guard us from evil.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
