– Angel of God

Guardian Angel

“Angel of God” is a Roman Catholic traditional prayer for the intercession of the guardian angel, often taught to young children as the first prayer learned. It serves as a reminder of God’s love, and by enjoining the guardian angel to support the child in a loving way, the prayer echoes God’s abiding love.

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