The Platinum Jubilee

On the Occasion of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, we offer our thanks for her faithful service to our Country and the Commonwealth, and pray for her to Almighty God.

 

A PRAYER FOR THE QUEEN

V/.       O Lord, save Elizabeth, our Queen.

R/.       And hear us on the day we call upon you.

V/.       O Lord, hear my prayer.

R/.       And let my cry come before you.

V/.       The Lord be with you.

R/.       And with your spirit.

Almighty God, we pray,

that your servant Elizabeth, our Queen,

who, by your providence has received the governance of this realm,

may continue to grow in every virtue,

that, imbued with your heavenly grace,

she may be preserved from all that is harmful and evil

and, being blessed with your favour

may, with the royal family,

come at last into your presence,

through Christ, who is the way, the truth and the life

and who lives and reigns with you

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God, for ever and ever.

Amen
