This 21st century icon depicts the Guardian Angel, the faithful companion and ever-present protector of every baptized Christian. The icon of the Guardian Angel is a perfect baptism gift. The Guardian Angel is commemorated on November 8, together with all the Angels.
Prayer to Your Guardian Angel
O Angel of Christ, holy guardian and protector of my soul and body, forgive me of everything I have done to offend you every day, and protect me from all influence and temptation of the evil one. May I never offend God by my sin. Pray for me to the Lord, that He may make me worthy of the grace of the All-holy Trinity, and of the Most Blessed Theotokos, and of all the Saints. Amen.

I have a non-Christian relative who is expecting a baby in two months. The Guardian Angel and Child Icon seemed like a perfect gift that would not infringe upon the family's preferred religious beliefs and traditions while still offering a non-threatening religious presence in the life of the child. Additionally, I can offer the prayer to his/her guardian angel on the child's behalf.
