Prayers On The Death Of Queen Elizabeth II

In this moment of sorrow, the Lord is in our midst and consoles us with his word:

No eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the human heart conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him. (1 Corinthians 2 Verse 9)

Blessed are the sorrowful; they shall be comforted. (Matthew 5 Verse 4)

Into your hands, O Lord, we humbly entrust Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

In this life you embraced her with your tender love, and opened to her the gate of heaven.

The old order has passed away, as you welcome her into paradise, where there will be no sorrow, no weeping nor pain, but the fullness of peace and joy, with your Son and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.


Heavenly Father, into whose hands Jesus Christ commended his spirit at the last hour.

Into those same hands we now commend your servant Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, that death may be for her the gate to life, and to eternal fellowship with you; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
