The Presence of Angels

Heavenly Father,

As in Your Name we gather,

Make us more conscious of Your Angels.

As Your Son, Jesus, is in the Gospels,

May they pervade our imaginations.

Occupying our dreams and visions,

Suggesting all our decisions,

And ordering all our actions.

At the Right hand of the Father, Jesus,

May Your Angel companions be with us.

In our reticence,

And in our eloquence.

In our occupations,

And in our relaxations.

In company,

And in privacy.

In the freshness of the morning,

And in the weariness of the evening.

O Divine Comforter,

As You bring us together,

Give us the grace,

In this life’s interal,

Humbly to embrace,

The mystical,

Celestial company,

Of Your Angel army.
