An Australian prayer on the death of
Queen Elizabeth the Second
Almighty God, ruler of every nation,
we give you thanks
for the life of your servant, Queen Elizabeth the Second,
whose faithful obedience to her calling
and whose leadership marked by sacrificial service
have inspired generations of her people.
May the heavenly grace which sustained her
comfort all who mourn her death.
Inspire, we pray, by her example,
the leaders and people of the United Kingdom,
the Commonwealth, and this nation of Australia
to work together with renewed passion for justice and peace.
As you have received her into her eternal rest,
renew our trust that nothing can separate us from your love,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
