Queen Elizabeth II

Prayers of Thanksgiving

We give thanks for the life and service of Queen Elizabeth, for her humility, gentle spirit, servant hearted leadership and for all she communicated of the Christian faith. We give thanks for the welcome of God to her, ‘You are my beloved one in whom I am well pleased.’

‘Call out in us again a willingness to love and serve.’ (from the Eata liturgy)

We pray for King Charles III. May God grant him wisdom in the coming days and years, and that his own service might prove to be a profound blessing. 

‘Call out in us again a willingness to love and serve.’

We pray for those who grieve, that they might know the consolation of God as they walk this difficult path. 

‘Call out in us again a willingness to love and serve.’

We pray for the UK and the Commonwealth in the disorientation following her death. How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?

‘Call out in us again a willingness to love and serve.’

We pray for ourselves that God would strengthen our own vocations to live Availability and Intentional Vulnerability in the name of Christ:  ‘Call out in me again a willingness to love and serve.’
