We in the Free Churches share the deep sense of loss and sorrow felt across the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, and throughout the world, on the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The Queen reigned for over 70 years and was greatly loved for her service, strength and wisdom. Her Christian witness has been a profound inspiration as she has faithfully served her God and her people. At this time of mourning our thoughts go out to her family and in particular to the King whose private grief and public duty lie heavily upon him.
Heavenly Father, we thank you for the long life and witness of your servant Elizabeth our Queen, and for the service she has given to you, our country and the Commonwealth. May you bless her family and bring your comfort and peace to them. Bless our nation as we mourn her death and may her example continue to inspire us.
This we ask through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
