Prayer for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The General Synod Office has circulated the following prayer, approved by College of Bishops, to mark this occasion:

Prayer for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Almighty and eternal God,

you uphold and govern all things

both in heaven and on earth,

and by your grace alone kings and queens do reign.

We thank you for all the blessings which you have bestowed upon us

throughout the reign of our sovereign lady, Queen Elizabeth,

whom you have set over us these threescore years and ten.

We thank you for the wisdom of her guidance and her love of peace,

for the care and devotion with which she has served her people,

for the example of her gracious life.

As we rejoice before you with thankful hearts,

we pray that we may ever be united in love and service to one another,

as people called to live according to your will,

for the good of all the world,

and the glory of your great name,

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
