Saint George

Almighty God, who hast made us heirs of all the victories of faith: Arm us, like Saint George, with such trust in the truth that is invisible, that we may seek no rest from its demands, and have no fear in its service; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O God of hosts, who didst so kindle the flame of love in the heart of thy servant George that he bore witness to the risen Lord by his life and by his death: grant us the same faith and power of love that we, who rejoice in his triumphs, may come to share with him the fullness of the resurrection; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

O Lord God of hosts who didst give grace to thy servant George to lay aside the fear of man and to confess thee even unto death, grant, we pray thee, that we and all our countrymen who bear office in the world, may think lightly of earthly place and honour and rather seek to please [Jesus] the Captain of our salvation who hath chosen us to be his soldiers, to whom with thee and the Holy Ghost be thanks and praise from all the armies of thy saints, now and for evermore. Amen.
