St. Gabriel prayers are a powerful aid in our spiritual life, and can greatly enrich our prayer life. St. Gabriel is one of the three Archangels, and his role is to serve as God’s messenger. He is commonly portrayed in art as wearing blue or white and carries a lily.
In the Bible, he appears in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. In the Old Testament, he appears to Daniel and explains his visions while Daniel is sleeping.
In the New Testament St. Gabriel appears at some very important times. First, he appears to Zacharias and tells him that his prayers for a child have been heard and that his wife Elisabeth will have a child.
The child that is born to Zacharias and Elisabeth is John the Baptist, who announced the coming of Jesus. But before John is even born, Gabriel comes to deliver a message again, this time to Elisabeth’s cousin, Mary. This time Gabriel gives the most important message of all. He tells Mary that she is to bear a child. Because of these appearances, St. Gabriel is known as the messenger of God. He delivers many messages about faith. He is the patron saint of messengers, telecommunications workers, and postal workers. His feast day is celebrated on March 24.
Prayers to St. Gabriel the Archangel
Prayer of Praise to St. Gabriel
St. Gabriel, the glorious and powerful messenger of God,
We thank you and praise you for your role in bringing salvation to a sinful world.
You helped the prophet, Daniel, to understand and proclaim God’s word.
You foretold the birth of John the Baptist, and announced to Mary the birth of her Son, Jesus,
who came to save the world.
You showed the shepherds the way to the cradle on that great night when Jesus was born,
and sang His praises to the world with all the choirs of angels.
You stand before the throne of God and proclaim His greatness to us ceaselessly, and you reveal to us the great mysteries of His Divine Life.
You pray for us unceasingly and lead our souls to heaven.
May God be ever praised and glorified through your name, Oh St. Gabriel, now and forever,

You never doubt in God’s goodness and love; help us to have that same confidence and to praise God as you do. Grant us faith, though we are blind to the greatness of God’s love for us.
