Night prayer for your Guardian Angel’s protection

Philip Kosloski - published on 02/06/22

Ask God to grant you a peaceful night of sleep, under the protection of your Guardian Angel.

While we may have been taught as a child that our Guardian Angel will protect us at night, as adults we may have forgotten that simple fact. Yet, whether we realize it or not, angels surround us and our family during our sleep, keeping watch over us and protecting us from various spiritual or physical harm.

Here is a prayer from Dom Prosper Gueranger’s Liturgical Year that asks God to grant us a peaceful sleep under their watchful care.

O God, who in your wonderful providence,
has been pleased to appoint your holy angels for our guardians:
Mercifully hear our prayer and grant we may rest secure under their protection,
and enjoy their fellowship in heaven for ever.
Through Christ our Lord.
