Praying for Healing with Saint George

Saint George and the Dragon are archetype images that show us important truths. In this case, Saint George, with God’s help, is able to defeat the dragon somewhat effortlessly/ When we put our trust in God, He takes over and what seems difficult becomes easy.

I talk more about this Icon in a recent newsletter. Of course, we don’t pray to Icons, but we can use them to help us to focus our prayers, and also as lectio divina- praying with Scripture.

Lectio Divina

“Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard.” Isaiah 58:8

“Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.” Matthew 4:23

These are just two posibilities. I will have prints available for this Icon on my print website soon.
