Guardian angels watch over people and care for them during every part of their lives, believers say. Here are some guardian angel prayers from Judaism:

The Shalom Aleichem Prayer (Sung Before Shabbat Meals)

"We wish you peace, guardian angels of service, angels of the most high, from the King of kings, the Holy One, praised be he."

Bedtime Prayer (Part of the Shema) Asking God to Send Archangels to Guard You

"To God Almighty, the Lord of Israel: May Michael be at my right hand, Gabriel at my left hand, before me Raphael and behind me Uriel, and above me the divine presence of God."

Jacob’s Blessing Prayer

"May the angel who redeems me from all evil bless the children. In them may my name be recalled, and the names of my fathers Abraham and Isaac, and may they flourish as multitudes upon the earth."

Prayer to Ask Guardian Angels to Deliver Your Prayers to God

"Usherers of mercy, usher in our plea for mercy, before the master of mercy, you who cause prayer to be heard, may you cause our prayer to be heard before the Hearer of prayer.

You who cause our outcry to be heard, may you cause our outcry to be heard, before the Hearer of outcry.

You who usher in tears, may you usher in our tears, before the King who finds favor through tears.

Exert yourselves and multiply supplication and petition before the king, God, exalted and most high."
