Prayer to St. George

Columban Daily Prayer
April 23, 2022

O St. George,
faithful servant of God and invincible martyr;
favored by God with the gift of faith,
and inflamed with an ardent love of Christ,
You fought valiantly against the dragon
of pride, falsehood, and deceit.
Neither pain nor torture, sword nor death
could part you from the love of Christ.
I fervently implore you
for the sake of this love
to help me by your 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 those
who persevere to the end.
