Anyone know of this prayer to the three archangels?
« on: January 26, 2021, 07:31:37 AM »
I once knew a traditional Catholic who, when leading informal group prayer, used to include a short prayer to the three archangels. I don't remember the exact wording, but it was something like "St. Michael be at our right side, St. Gabriel at our left, St. Raphael behind us" and maybe a few lines after that. Anyone familiar with this prayer, or its origins? Or whether such a prayer even exists?

After a Google search, I came across a Jewish prayer (here and here), which seems a lot like the prayer I'm thinking of, except, unlike the Jewish prayer, the one I'm thinking of did not include the stuff about Uriel or Shekinah (and I think it was mostly prayed before travel, not at bedtime).
