This is the first recorded prayer to a guardian angel. It was written by St. Macarius of Egypt. He was Coptic monk and hermit born in 300 A.D. and was well known for his great wisdom. His friends called him, “Pidar Yougiron” which translates to “old young man“.
Michael, Michael of the morning, Fresh chord of Heaven adorning, Keep me safe today, And in time of temptation Drive the devil away. Amen.
