My Guardian Angel Prayer to Sleep Peacefully


Sometimes falling asleep and sleeping peacefully is difficult for our children. The world we live in presents new changes and challenges every day that make us begin to experience disturbing situations at an earlier age than the one we parents experienced.

If you are looking for a prayer to pray with your children at bedtime and help them fall asleep, there is a very beautiful one which is the Prayer of the Little Guardian Angel. We have found the exact text in Spanish that changes depending on the country in question and even the tradition of each family, but we really like this version because it is the one we pray with our daughter. It is appropriate for young boys and girls because it is short and has rhyme.

If you want, you can download the image and print it to have it on hand at bedtime, or if you like a PDF with better quality, you can send us an email to

Good night, blessings to you and your family... and may you dream of the little angels!

Here's an English version according to Catholic tradition.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
to whom God’s love commits me here,
ever this day be at my side,
to light and guard, to rule and guide.
