How to pray to the guardian angel before going out and at home
It is believed that before leaving the house it is best to pray to the Creator or Guardian Angel. You can turn to God in your own words, ask him to make your day bright and happy.
You can read "Our Father," with the intention to improve your upcoming day. Ask for protection from your Guardian Angel and thank him for his help. Your angel will take away evil forces from you and repel the attack of demons, bring good and intelligent people into your life.
Also before entering the house you can ask for help the Mother of God, Nicholas the Wonderworker and the Archangel Michael.

God hears our prayers and always answers them, so it is extremely important to sincerely ask him for help! After reading the canonical prayer, ask the Lord for protection and help, tell him what you are most worried about and how you would like to get a result at the end of the day.
If you are not alone and do not want to draw attention to yourself, say a short prayer to yourself. If you remember, read the prayer of John Chrysostom. But you can simply ask God in your own words: "Help me, protect me from all evil today and take unkind people away from me." At the end of the prayer there should be words of gratitude.
If you leave the house with your loved ones, it will be great if you pray together. This will only strengthen your prayer and bring good events to each of you.
