The nation mourns the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth. She often spoke of her faith in the Lord Jesus and of his teachings as her example and hope. May she be remembered as Elizabeth the Faithful. We pray now for the King as he assumes the onerous responsibilities of his new role. Church Society offers the following prayer, which all are free to use.

O Jesus Christ our Saviour,
Lord of lords and King of kings,
we thank you for our Late Sovereign Lady,
your servant Elizabeth, our Queen,
who is now with you in heaven;
grant, in your tender mercy,
comfort to those who mourn her death,
strength and wisdom to our King,
and blessing upon our whole nation,
that upheld by your grace,
and trusting in your goodness,
we may know your power to save,
for we pray all these things
in your precious name,


Thanks to the Revd Dr Mark Smith of Clare College, Cambridge for writing this collect.
