The death of Her Majesty The Queen
We give thanks for the long reign and Christian witness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
At this sad time we are praying for all of her family and her household, and for all of us as we mourn.
We pray for the King as he takes up his heavy responsibilities.
Our prayer space is available during daylight hours. Please use it if you would like a space for prayer or quiet reflection. Access is through the door next to the vicarage in Bristow Road
We invite you to join us in remembering Her Majesty in prayer, perhaps using these words:
Lord of Lords and King of Kings,
we give you thanks
for our late sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II.
for the grace and mercy
she received from you,
for all that she reflected
of your gracious sovereignty,
and for the great love she held
for you and for her people.
Enfold her in your everlasting arms
grant her rest
and raise her up at the last
in the company of the saints in light. Amen
We remember, too, the Royal Family in their bereavement:
O God, our sovereign and shepherd,
who brought again your Son, Jesus Christ,
from the valley of death,
comfort, we pray,
all the Royal Family
with your protecting presence.
Fill them with your Holy Spirit;
and with your heavenly peace;
and bring them at the last
to your everlasting kingdom;
through Jesus Christ, our Lord.
