Coptic Prayer to the Angels

Seven archangels stand glorifying the Almighty and serving the hidden mystery.

Michael the first, Gabriel the second, and Raphael the third, symbol of the Trinity. Surael, Sakakael, Sratael and Ananael. These are the shining ones, the great and pure ones, who pray to God for mankind.

The cherubim, the seraphim, the thrones, dominions, powers, and the four living creatures bearing the chariot of God.

The twenty-four elders in the Church of the Firstborn, praise Him without ceasing, crying out and saying:

“Holy is God; heal the sick. Holy is the Almighty; give rest to the departed. Holy is the Immortal; bless Thine inheritance. May Thy mercy and Thy peace be a stronghold unto Thy people.”

Holy, holy, holy, Lord of Hosts. Heaven and earth are full of Thy glory. Intercede for us, O angels our guardians, and all heavenly hosts, that our sins may be forgiven.
