Prayer to your Guardian Angel

Here are the words of the traditional prayer to your Guardian Angel.

Among the many prayers taught by Catholic parents to their children is the prayer to your Guardian Angel. It is a prayer often linked to St. Anselm of Canterbury, a Benedictine monk who lived during the 11th century, but may have been composed by a different monk around the same time.

Here are the words to the prayer to your Guardian Angel.

Angel of God, 
my guardian dear, 
To whom God’s love
commits me here, 
Ever this day, 
be at my side, 
To light and guard, 
Rule and guide.
