St. Gabriel, the Archangel Comments

The name Gabriel means "man of God," or "God has shown himself mighty." It appears first in the prophesies of Daniel in the Old Testament. The angel announced to Daniel the prophecy of the seventy weeks. His name also occurs in the apocryphal book of Henoch.

    Dear Father in Heaven
    Tomorrow is the day they make a decision of hiring for the job. Please let my application find favor with you and with those in charge who will be the deciding ones. I need this job badly, my finances are not good. I can not depend on anyone other than myself to make sure the rent is paid, or that obligations are met, and this job would be a blessing. Please, Lord, have mercy and grant me this petition. Dear Mother Mary, please ask your Son, Jesus, to grant me this favor. Please Holy Spirit, gently guide the decision in my favor. Those in my family who need me, who depend on me, please help me be able to help them when needed. Give me strength and wisdom to say the right things and reach the goals expected of me. Please help me be successful in this job and to be the person I should be. Thank you, Dear God, for Your blessings and Your love. Please stay by my side always.Dear St. Gabriel, Archangel, please stay close to me, protect me and my loved ones, and guide us towards Jesus always. Please intercede for me in my request for the job.

    Robert Gallagher, here is a prayer to Saint Gabriel the Archangel: (you can get more on other sites on the web.)

    Grant, we beseech thee, almighty God: that we who venerate Saint Gabriel, thy Archangel, may through his intercession be strengthened in the love of thy name. Through our Lord. Amen.

    St. Gabriel is a wonderful saint. I used to pray to him all the time. I received so many favors through his intercession. He never failed to assist me. When I was worried, or under pressure he was a great comfort for me. He was the angel who comforted Jesus in his agony in the garden. Pray to him and you won't be disappointed! Thank you St. Gabriel, for being so good

    Saint Gabriel,

    I am praying ti you for Ron. Please continue to keep watching over him. Please help him realize he needs to make life changes. Please guide me and allow me to assist you in pushing him in the right direction. Help him find peace with himself and with his family. Show him how he can be loved and how he is just as deserving as anyone else. Help me give him the signs that makes him realize that he is worthy and deserving of love. Let him see that "nothing is impossible with God" and he is deserving of all things good.

    I also pray for Luis. Please be my archangel and tell him to make things right. I pray that he sees the light and learn from you to deliver great profound and nothing but HONEST news. Let his life be finally filled with honesty, happiness, and love. He is always on the edge, please help him in his darkest hours to realize all the good he had learned and taken from our relationship and what we had.

    Please guide me to be a messenger and vessel for Saint Jude. Help me, help others who are in despair. Please show me and guide me to be strong, steadfast and a positive influence in everyones lives, especially those in dire need that are asking for prayers, help, and answers from you and Saint Jude.

    I love you!

    O loving messenger of the Incarnation, descend upon all those for whom I wish peace and happiness. Spread your wings over the cradles of the new-born babes, O thou who didst announce the coming of the Infant Jesus. Give to the young a lily petal from the virginal scepter in your hand. Cause the Ave Maria to re-echo in all hearts that they may find grace and joy through Mary. Finally, recall the sublime words spoken on the day of the Annunciation -- "Nothing is impossible with God," and repeat them in hours of trial -- to all I love -- that their confidence in Our Lord may be reanimated, when all human help fails. Amen
