Prayer in Honor of Saint George
O God, who didn’t grant to Saint George strength and constancy in the various torments which he sustained for our holy faith; we beseech Thee to preserve, though his intercession, our faith from wavering and doubt, so that we may serve Thee with a sincere heart faithfully unto death. Through Christ our Lord. Amens.
Invocation of Saint George
Faithful servant of God
and invincible martyr, Saint George;
favored by God with the gift of faith,
and inflamed with an ardent love of Christ,
thou didst fight valiantly
against the dragon of pride,
falsehood, and deceit.
Neither pain or torture,
sword nor death could part thee
from the love of Christ.
I fervently implore thee for the sake of this love
to help me by intercession
to overcome the temptations that surround me,
and to bear bravely the trials that oppress me,
so that I may patiently carry the cross
which is placed upon me;
and let neither distress nor difficulties
separate me from the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Valiant champion of the Faith,
assist me in the combat against evil,
that I may win the crown promised to them
that persevere unto the end.
