Compassionate God, by your angels you show that you care for us. In confidence we pray: God, help us in our needs. 

By your holy angel Michael drive away temptations that divide us, and bring us close to you.  

     God, help us in our needs.  

By your holy angel Raphael lead travelers along safe roads, and heal the long-suffering.  

     God, help us in our needs. 

By your holy angel Gabriel give us courage to seek your will and strength to do it.  

     God, help us in our needs. 

Our Father . . . 

May God order our days in peace and welcome us with choirs of angels when our earthly pilgrimage has ended. Amen.
