Eternal God, Source of Compassion and Strength,
we stand before You in grief and sorrow
to mourn the death of our Sovereign Lady,
Queen Elizabeth (Ⅱ),
who died on the 8th of September 2022.
During the seventy years of her reign,
during which she saw many upheavals and changes,
she served her people with enduring devotion and grace,
uniting races, creeds and tongues
with outstretched hand
and cheerful countenance.
You endowed her with wisdom and discretion,
with dignity and strength of purpose.
In times of turmoil and distress,
she sought comfort from her faith
and led by example,
speaking truth,
abiding by her oath of majesty,
accepting the discipline of her sovereignty
and serving God with humility and intent.
She worked with abiding and conscientious duty
for the good of all her people,
overcoming her own trials and tribulations
to unite us as one humanity,
whose purpose it is to do God’s will
for the good of all people.
Merciful God,
bring comfort and strength to her family
and all who mourn her death.
Remember her merits and righteous deeds
which she performed on earth.
Open for her the gates of righteousness and light,
of compassion and grace.
Shelter her for ever under your loving care,
and let her soul be bound up
in the bond of eternal life.
May her reign remain an example
to guide King Charles (Ⅲ)
with integrity and truth,
promoting freedom,
justice
and righteousness,
so that all may be blessed
with prosperity
and peace.
We pray for the health and well-being of the new King.
May he be strengthened by his faith in You,
God of all humanity,
so that all may live
in harmony,
friendship
and peace.
Amen.
