Prayer on the death of the Duke of Edinburgh

Heavenly Father, 

into whose hands Jesus Christ 

commended his spirit at the last hour: 

into those same hands we now commend your servant Philip, 

that death may be for him 

the gate to life and to eternal fellowship with you; 

through Jesus Christ our Lord.
