A Prayer for St George

Heavenly Father, give us the bravery of St George to stand up for the truth and the glory of God that we have seen in the face of Jesus Christ. Give us the strength to overcome in our lives and in the world, all that is contrary to your rule of justice and love. Help us to be good news to the poor proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind; let the oppressed go free and proclaim the good news of God's favour and Jubilee. Amen


Almighty Father who in your great mercy gladdened the disciples with the sight of the risen Lord: give us such knowledge of his presence with us, that we may be strengthened and sustained by his risen life and serve you continually in righteousness and truth; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.

Post Communion

Living God, your Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: open the eyes of our faith,

that we may see him in all his redeeming work; who is alive and reigns, now and for ever. Amen.
