Prayer To St Alex

Saint Alexius (born in Athens, in the year 266, died there in 352) was a patrician and a senator of the Roman Empire who, through repentance and amendment of his way of life, has obtained from God power over demons and punishment of sinners.

St Alex was an early Christian from the third century. He was born in Egypt and studied medicine at Alexandria. After his parents died, he moved to Palestine where he became an ordained priest. Eventually, he started a Christian hospital in Jerusalem. His main goals were to: ministered to the sick, to free slaves, and to raise money for the hospital’s services by selling his own writings.

Prayer To St Alex

Oh, glorious and Blessed Saint Alexius! Faithful, pious and good servant that you are, enjoying the glory of God, obtain me the favor to separate me from all evil.

Blessed Saint Alexius, you have the power to drive away all the evil that surrounds the servants of the Lord, attain for me that my enemies do not attack me unjustly; you who found favor before Mary, take me away from Satan, who sows tares around me, protect me from the one who with evils, magic, spells or sorceries wants to harm me; Free me from evil tongues, from gossip, defamation and set ups, from everyone who wants to see me surrendered and sunk.

Remove me from envy and injustice, separate me from jealousy and rancor, from infidelity, from betrayal, hide me where those who want to cause my eternal perdition cannot find me.

Oh Glorious Saint Alexius, bring me closer to Jesus and Mary, so that with their Kindness they shower me with all their goods, and grant me the grace that I humbly request:

Blessed Saint Alexius: for the Blessed Virgin Mary, for her beloved Son Jesus Christ and for the grace of the Holy Spirit, have mercy on me and do not ignore my request.
