Remembering Our Queen

Queen Elizabeth II 1926 - 2022

Prayers for the Queen, her family and us

Pray for The Queen

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord,

and let perpetual light shine upon her.

May she rest in peace.


A remembrance prayer

God of our longing,

hear our prayers

protect our dreams,

and listen to our silent hopes.

Deal gently with our pain,

speak to our sadness,

and remove the barriers

that imprison our spirit.

Shed your light

where shadows are cast,

that we may feel your warmth

and know your presence.

Give us courage

to hold fast to our vision

that we may build our world

and create our future.


Annabel Shilson-Thomas/CAFOD

A prayer for The Queen's family

Bless those who mourn, eternal God,

with the comfort of your love

that they may face each new day with hope

and the certainty that nothing can destroy

the good that has been given.

May their memories become joyful,

their days enriched with friendship,

and their lives encircled by your love.


Vienna Cobb Anderson, from Prayers of Our Hearts (1991, Crossroad Publishing Co.)
