O angel of God, to whose guardianship I have been committed by the divine mercy, enlighten and guard, rule, and govern me. Amen.
Heavenly Father, the moment you created my soul, you gave me to the care of an angel to enlighten, guard, rule, and govern me. I thank you for your infinite goodness to me. I thank you also, my guardian angel, for accompanying me every day on my journey back to Heaven. It is a great comfort for me to know that you give me holy inspirations, that you defend me from dangers to soul and body, and that you pray to the Father for me.
My guardian angel, you always contemplate the Lord and you want me to be your fellow citizen in Heaven. I beg you to obtain for me pardon from the Lord for being very often deaf to your counsel, and for sinning, unmindful of your presence.
My guardian angel, faithful and strong in virtue, you are among the angels in Heaven who, led by Archangel Michael, conquered Satan and his followers. That fight of old continues on Earth today: the powers of evil are against Jesus Christ to ensnare souls. Pray to the Queen of Angels for the church, the city of God that fights against the city of Satan. O Archangel Michael, with all your followers, defend us in the war; be our strength against the malice and snare of the demon. O that the Lord would subdue him! And you, the prince of the Heavenly court, drive away into hell Satan and the other evil spirits who seek to ruin our salvation.
O angels of paradise, take care of writers, technicians, and distributors of all media and all who use them. Guard them from spreading evil, guide them in truth, and obtain for them true charity. Ask the Lord for necessary vocations to combat evil and accompany them in their delicate mission. Inspire all people to contribute with deeds, prayers, and offerings for the conversion of hearts and the salvation of souls. Pray that we serve to raise the standard of human life toward eternal good.
All you angels of the Lord, you have been called to form a noble court, to praise and bless continuously the Holy Trinity, to make up for our forgetfulness. You are true lovers of God and of souls, and you continue to sing, “Glory to God in the highest, and peace on Earth to people of good will.”
We pray that all may know the true and only God, the son sent by him, and the church, the pillar of truth. Pray that the name of God may be held holy, that the kingdom of Jesus Christ may come, and his will may be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Protect and guide the civil authorities, the workers, and the suffering; obtain blessings and salvation for all those who search for truth, justice, and peace.
