Barakiel Brings Good Fortune
Barakiel is an ancient angel and he is the ruler of the order of the Seraphim. Archangel Barachiel (who is also called Barakiel) is known as the angel of blessings. His name means “God’s blessing.” He is the angel of good fortune and he will assist you in opening your heart so you can receive the gifts of abundance. He works to announce and deliver God's blessings to people. He will also help you keep a positive outlook and encourage you to expect abundance in your life. Barachiel also leads the guardian angels, who work more closely with human beings than any other angels. Since rose petals symbolize God's blessings showering down from heaven into people's lives,
Barachiel will sometimes use rose petals to signal his presence in your life, say believers. While Barachiel usually sends roses with beautiful petals into the lives of people with whom he's interacting, sometimes he sends just the fragrance of roses as a sign that he's nearby. The scent of roses is a sign of the presence of holiness in general. It's sometimes called the "odor of sanctity" because of that. Throughout history, people have reported smelling roses after they have prayed for encouragement, even when no roses are around them. Smelling something from a spiritual source instead of a physical source is called the miracle of clairalience.
Prayer to Barakiel
Barakiel, open my heart so I can receive the blessings and good fortune that await me. It’s here and it’s now and I am inviting these gifts of abundance into my life. Help me stay positive so I can be a magnet of attraction, drawing everything into my life so I can experience my heart’s desires.
Barachiel, angel of blessings, I thank God for making you a generous channel through which God pours many blessings into people's lives. Please intercede in prayer before God for me, asking God to bless me in all areas of my life from my relationships with family and friends to my work. Grant me success in all of my pursuits that line up with God's will for me.
Teach me to understand blessings from an accurate perspective. If I focus mainly on the blessings I want God to give me, my perspective on God can become distorted, reducing my view of him to just a cosmic vending machine who dispenses blessings when I order them through my prayers. Show me how to approach God relationally instead of transactionally. Help me focus on God himself, the Giver, rather than the gifts that God can give me. Remind me that the ultimate blessing is a relationship with God. Urge me to make my relationship with God, my loving Father in heaven, my top priority, and to base my daily decisions on what will help me grow closer to God.
Help me to recognize and appreciate the many small yet significant blessings that God is constantly pouring into my life. Encourage me with some tangible signs of your presence with me after I pray, such as your signature sign: rose petals that symbolize God's sweet blessings falling into my life. Remind me to celebrate every blessing God gives me and enjoy it to the fullest. When I hope for a specific kind of blessing in my life, remind me to pray about it. Intercede in prayer for me with God for each specific blessing I pray for, asking that God respond to my prayers by sending the blessings into my life at the right time and in the right way. If God chooses not to give me a blessing that I want, help me move away from anger and toward peace, trusting that the God who made me knows what's best for me. Redirect my thinking toward another blessing that God does want to give me.
Thank you for your work leading the many guardian angels who so carefully watch over people on Earth. Please ask my own guardian angel to deliver as many blessings to me as God wants me to enjoy each day. If I need help from more than one guardian angel for protection when I'm in danger, arrange for additional guardian angels to come to me in that situation. Teach me how to develop a close friendship with my main guardian angel, so I can discern that angel's voice communicating with me and listen to his or her guidance, which will help me grow closer to God and enjoy the best life possible. Gently remind me often that guardian angels are at work recording everything I think, say, and do for a comprehensive record of my life that will be reviewed when I die. Encourage me to make the best, most loving choices possible every day so I can be a blessing to others and build a positive, faithful legacy. Help me to enjoy God's blessings and to show my gratitude for those blessings by loving God and other people well. Amen.
