Praying angels are a common theme in art. You will find sculptures, paintings, and drawings of angels in the act of praying. Below you will find some examples of this popular motif.
I have often wondered about what the angels say during their prayers and several ideas have come to my mind:
- They intercede before God on our behalf
- They ask for Divine Guidance
- They praise the Lord
- They give thanks

Prayer is when you talk to God; meditation is when you listen to God. ~ Diana Robinson
A Chorus of Praying Angels
An Angel Prayer
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,
Rule and guide.
A Praying Angel
May the road rise to meet you,
may the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm on your face,
the rain fall softly on your fields;
And until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.
A Prayer to Heaven
