A Prayer for the Queen
Merciful Father and Lord of all life, we praise you that we are made
in your image and reflect your truth and light. We thank you for the life
of our late Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth, for the love she received from you and showed among us. Above all, we rejoice at your gracious promise to all your servants, living and departed, that we shall rise again at the coming of Christ. And we ask that in due time we may share with your servant Elizabeth that clearer vision promised to us in the same Christ our Lord; who is alive and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen
As I was born in 1953 the year of Her Majesty’s coronation, I have always been proud to call myself a ‘New Elizabethan’
After leaving school I served (albeit briefly) in the Royal Navy.
The Queen has been a constant in my life and I will miss her.
Rest In Peace.
