Angel Prayers and Novenas
"Angels transcend every religion, every philosophy, every creed.
In fact angels have no religion as we know it ...
their existence precedes every religious system
that has ever existed on earth."
St. Thomas Aquinas

A Prayer on Strength
I pray to you to assist me as I develop the strength to carry out my life's mission. Please send your strengthening energy to help me to live life with courage and love for myself and all humanity. With your guidance I will strive to fulfill my purpose and assist others on their journey. This I ask of you through Christ, Amen.
Prayer To Saint Gabriel
Glorious Prince of the Court of Heaven and most excellent Saint Gabriel, first minister of God, friend of Jesus Christ, and favored by the Holy Mother, Defender of the church and lawyer of man. You favor our devotions and help me to love and serve you. Grant me what I desire and ask for with this prayer, for the honor, glory and fulfillment of my soul.
Saint Gabriel Prayer
Saint Gabriel the Archangel, I venerate you as the Angel of the Incarnation, because God specially appointed you to bear the messages concerning the God-Man to Daniel, Zechariah, and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Give me a very tender and devoted love for the Incarnate Word and his Blessed Mother more like your own.
I venerate you also as the "Strength from God" because you are the giver of God's strength, consoler and comforter chosen to strengthen God's faithful and teach them important truths. I ask for the grace of a special power of the will to strive for holiness of life. Steady my resolutions; renew my courage; comfort and console me in the problems, trials and sufferings of daily living, as you consoled our Savior in his agony and Mary in her sorrows and Joseph in his trials.
I put my confidence in you. Saint Gabriel I ask you especially for this favor: (mention your request). Through your earnest love for the Son of God made man and for his Blessed Mother I beg of you, intercede for me that my request may be granted, if it be God's holy will.
Pray for us, Saint Gabriel the Archangel, that we may be worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.
Chaplet of Saint Gabriel
Begin with the following prayer:
through the salutation of the Archangel Gabriel,
may we honour the Incarnation of Your Divine son."
"Mother of our Saviour,
may we strive always to imitate your holy virtues
and to respond to our Father.
'Be it done unto me according to Thy Word.'"
please praise our Father
for the gift of His Son
praying, one day,
by His grace, we may all be one.
"Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with Thee:
Blessed art though among women.
"Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb,
and shalt bring forth a son:
and thou shalt call his name Jesus."
Return to Sarah's ArchAngels
The Sacred Scriptures have revealed the proper names of only three Angels, all of
whom belong to the Choir of the Archangels. The names are well known to all, namely:
Michael, Gabriel, Raphael. Ancient apocryphal literature of the Old Testament
contains several other names of Archangels in addition to the three just mentioned.
Like the sources themselves, these other names are spurious. Names like Uriel,
Raguel, Sariel, and Jeremiel are not found in the canonical books of Sacred
Scripture, but in the apocryphal book of Enoch, fourth book of Esdras, and in
rabbinical literature. The Church does not permit proper names of Angels that are not
found in the canonical books of the Bible. All such names that were taken from
apocryphal writings were rejected under Pope Zachary, in 745. There must have been
danger of serious abuses in this regard during that century, because a similar step
was taken in a synod held at Aix-la-Chapelle in 789.
