Guardian Angels are a big part of Orthodoxy, we each have one once we are received into the church. We pray a supplicatory canon to our guardian angel when preparing for the eucharist in the Russain Tradition. There's also an akathist to the guardian angel that's very, very good. I highly recommend it.

When it comes to angels in general, we can ask the Archangels to pray for us (there are 7 of them recognized in Orthodoxy). An archangel is my patron saint, so I try my best to pray to him often and with appropriate reverence.
So we don't have one until that point - this seems odd to me?
Not sure I can get that book, but it was nice learning what akathist means. Thanks.
Is there a more appropriate thread to ask these questions as I have others.
