An official prayer:
O Lord our Heavenly Father, Almighty and Everlasting God;
we remember before you our late Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth,
in thankfulness for the blessings which you have bestowed upon us by her reign;
for the example she set of unwearied devotion to duty;
for her steadfast courage in times of war and anxiety;
and for the love and loyalty borne to her by a great family of people in all parts of the world.
And we pray that you give us grace that, having these mercies in remembrance,
we may with one heart and one mind set forward the welfare of this land and Commonwealth,
and hasten to coming of your kingdom of peace and goodwill among all people through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A personal prayer:
Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord.
And by Thy great mercy, defend us from all perils and dangers of this night.
For the love of Thy only Son, our Saviour
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
God bless as we remember fondly a lady of faith and pray for God’s blessing on King Charles and the royal family.
