Among Jews and Christians, one's personal Angel, sent by God to protect one, is called a Guardian Angel. The idea is not original to Judaism or Christianity, however, but has roots in ancient Greek religion and in Zoroastrianism. A Guardian Angel may protect one from danger or loss of life, and may also bring hope and comfort to those in grief and sorrow. Guardian Angels are often considered to be the particular patrons of children.
GUARDIAN ANGEL VIGIL LIGHT
This candle is fixed and dressed with oil and herbs alleged to help in receiving spiritual aid and inspiration from your Guardian Angel. Write your name 9 times on a paper, place the paper beneath this light and pray any of the petitions below or recite the 91st Psalm for protection from danger.
PRAYER TO THE GUARDIAN ANGELLet us, with confident trust, invoke His aid and protection. Oh glorious Guardian Angel, watch over us during life, defend us against the assaults of the demon, assist us especially at the hour of death, and obtain for us a favorable judgment. Amen.
CHILD'S PRAYER TO THE GUARDIAN ANGELAngel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom His love commits me here;
Ever this day be at my side,
To light and guard, to rule and guide.
ANGEL DE LA GUARDIA!Oh! Angel benignisimo de mi guarda, tutor, maestra guia, defensor y sapientisimo consejero amigo mio a quien estoy comendado por la bondad del Senor. Gracias te doy que me libraste de muchos danos y peligros del cuerpo y del alma, gracias te doy que estando durmiendo, tu me velaste, y despierto me encaminaste al oido con santas inspiraciones, me avisaste, yo, encegado no me valia de tus consejos, perdoname amigo mio, mensajero del cielo, consejero y protector, amparame y guiame por el camino derecho y seguro a esa santa ciudad. Amen. (Rezar un Padre Nuestro y una Ave Maria.)
PROTECTION FOR A CHILD
Here is an altar statue we love, the Guardian Angel and Sleeping Child. If you have a young one in need of protection, this sweet 7" statue can be "loaded" underneath with personal concerns and you can use it as part of a spell of protection. Here's how:
Write the child's name and birth date on a small piece of paper or on a small photo and tape a hair of the child to it. Go to a crafts store and buy some green or brown crafter's felt and some fabric glue. Glue the prepared paper face-up to the statue and then glue the felt on. Pray Psalms 91 as you work. Trim the felt to the base of the statue and no one will know what is under the felt.
Now let's make your heartfelt protective spiritual work look like a an everyday knick-knack display:
Get an easel frame for a photo of the child and behind the photo, when you put it in the frame, insert two papers. On the first paper write out your prayer for the child's safely and happiness. On the second paper write out a copy of Psalms 91. Assemble the picture with these hidden papers in the frame.
Place the Guardian Angel statue and the framed photo of the child on a book case or entertainment center shelf, or on a small table-top. Set a floral array and a simple white candle dressed with Protection Oil or Guardian Angel Oil in front of the display. Burn the candle when the child may be away from home or in any kind of danger.
