Prayer to Saint Gabriel the Archangel

Saint Gabriel the archangel, lover of the beloved and guardian of the sanctuary, you are the announcer of the good news of our salvation. 

Bestow upon us a spirit of understanding, knowledge and wisdom.

Encourage in us fortitude to be not afraid, that we may always say yes to God’s will.

Protect and warn us of those who seek to harm us.

Strength of God, messenger of the Incarnation, remind us always of the expiation of our sin and everlasting justice.

You who stand before God, draw us closer to the Sacred and Immaculate hearts so we may witness in our own lives the crushed head of the serpent. 

Through your intercession, Gabriel, may we be lifted to the heights of heaven.

In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.  Amen.
