I believe the first part says "St. Alexius, Metropolitan of Moscow, Wonderworker", but the "wonderworker" part is just guessing because I can only read "miracle", not "worker". The second part says "St. Alexius, man of God".

Lol, I wrote it in reply 117.
There is an abbreviation "chud" so it has to be "wonderworker", as for "miracle" the abbreviation is rather not used.

Часне вериге св Петра

I’ve seen mention of the “honorable chains” or “precious chains” of St. Peter. Google translate gives me “time chains” of St. Peter. What is the better translation for these chains?

Honorable. There is for example "chesny krest" so it means "honorable Cross".
Google translate probable takes only the fisrt part of the word: "chas" and it means "time".

Yeah, you're right. And "wonderworker". An I see on the paper he has "...and became inhabitant of desert and I waited for God that is saving me from..."

Only hint: border icon on larger icon of Theotokos the Healer.

St. Antipas?
A google search reveals he’s the patron of dental health, reasonable merit for appearing on a healing icon.

Thank you for your help.

"Do you see, brethren, that this way is narrow which leads to the breadth of Paradise, but that wide is [the one] to Hell?"

"All forms of torture will first fail before we reject our Christ."

(Included above are the letterer's mistakes, specifically the wrong stress mark on final letters and the absence of a necessary abbreviation mark for Christ. I couldn't figure out how to replicate the superscript on the last word but since it was wrong anyway, I fixed it.)
