Angel of God

Angel of God

I used to pray this prayer to my Guardian Angel when I was a small boy before I went to sleep. The prayer is just perfect for little kids because of its rhyme and simplicity that makes it easy for them to remember and take to heart. Case in point is me, who can still recite it from memory. Of course right now my prayers are more complex already with my age but I still remember to ask for help from my guardian angel often.

I was telling my wife that I would like our son to pray this prayer before he went to sleep and luckily she found this little ceramic display at the mall. It even has the same picture of the guardian angel escorting two kids crossing a stream that my old prayer poster had. My son dropped it accidentally due to his fascination with it, but no biggie as what's important is the message *snicker*
