Her Majesty The Queen

‘We are all deeply saddened by the news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. For nearly all of us Her Majesty is the only monarch we have known, and this truly marks the end of an era. Her dedication and commitment to this country has been unwavering, and her Christian faith an inspiration. May she rest in peace and rise in glory’.

The Very Revd Mark Bonney, Dean of Ely

A Prayer for Her Majesty, The Queen

Heavenly Father,

We give you great thanks for the life and work of Her Majesty The Queen, for her unstinting service and devotion to the nation and the Commonwealth and her dedicated duty to the good of her people which has never failed.

We thank you too for her strength, her unassuming and modest character, her support for generations of governments and all who have served in her name.

We give thanks to her heartfelt and powerful witness to Jesus Christ, her love for her family, and we pray for them and all who mourn her death.

Amen
