Archangel Gabriel, I venerate you as the angel of the incarnation because God has especially appointed you to bear the messages concerning the God-man to Daniel, Zechariah, and the blessed virgin, Mary. Give me a tender and devoted mother, more like your own.
I venerate you also as the strength from God because you are the giver of God’s strength, consoler, and comforter chosen to strengthen God’s faithful, and teacher of important truths. I ask for the grace of a special power of the will to strive for holiness of life. Steady my resolutions. Renew my courage. Comfort and console me in the problems, trials, and sufferings of daily living as you consoled my savior in his agony, Mary in her sorrows, and Joseph in his trials. I put all my confidence in you.
Archangel Gabriel, I ask you especially for this favor, (STATE REQUEST). Through your earnest love for the son of God-made-man and for his blessed mother, I beg of you, intercede for me that my request may be granted if it be God’s holy will.
Pray for me, Archangel Gabriel, that I may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Almighty and ever-living God, since you chose the Archangel Gabriel from among all the angels to announce the mystery of your son’s incarnation, mercifully grant that I who honor him on Earth may feel the benefit of his patronage in Heaven. May you live and reign in my heart forever.
