We give thanks for the life of
Her Most Gracious Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
We honour her life of service
built on a firm foundation of faith
and an exemplary commitment to duty.
At this challenging time for this nation,
grant us words to speak when words are all we have
to ease the pain of those who mourn,
and to show our loving care.
We especially pray for King Charles III,
That he might lean upon Christ,
The only perfect Word,
whose Kingdom is love.
We pray that God will enfold him,
Christ will uphold him,
and the Holy Spirit will guide him in all things
until all weeping has passed;
and flickering hope parts the shadows at last.
We offer our prayer in the name of
Jesus Christ our Saviour.
