Daily prayer to your guardian angel is an excellent habit. With prayer, we show our devotion and ask for help. This is a fundamental step, given that the Guardian Angels cannot intervene if we do not ask them specifically. As I have said several times, precise words or particular rites are not needed to dialogue with the Angels, it is enough to pray with faith to be heard and granted.
Guardian Angel Daily Prayer
Most benign angel, my guardian, tutor, and teacher, my guide and defense, my very wise advisor, and most faithful friend. I have been recommended to you for the goodness of the Lord, from the day I was born until the last hour of my life. How much reverence I owe knowing that you are everywhere and always close to me.
With how much gratitude I have to thank you for the love you have for me, which and how much confidence to know you are my assistant and defender. Teach me, Holy Angel, correct me, protect me, guard me and guide me on the right and safe path to the Holy City of God. Do not allow me to do things that offend your holiness and purity.
Present my desires to the Lord, offer him my prayers, show him my miseries and ask for their remedy from his infinite goodness and from the maternal intercession of Mary Most Holy, your Queen. Watch when I sleep, support me when I’m tired, support me when I’m about to fall, lift me up when I’ve fallen. Show me the way when I’m lost, cheer me up when I lose heart, enlighten me when I don’t see.
Defend me when I am fought and especially on the last day of my life, yes my shield against the devil. By the grace of your defense and your guidance, finally obtain for me to enter your glorious abode, where for all eternity I can express my gratitude and glorify together with you the Lord and the Virgin Mary, your and my Queen.
