The prayers of us all at St Mary’s Burghfield are joined with those of the rest of the Diocese of Oxford as we pray for Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family today and in the coming days, as we mourn the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.
“We give thanks for Prince Philip’s long and extraordinary life, his faithful service to Queen and country, his support especially for young people, his humour, honesty and integrity and strong Christian faith and especially his steadfast support to the Queen over the long years of their marriage.
“Philip has been at the centre of our national life for so many decades offering a model of strength and stability. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace and rise in glory, and may God’s peace and love be with all who mourn his passing, and most especially his immediate family.”
– The Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford
You may find this prayer useful:
God of our lives,
we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
for his love of our country,
and for his devotion to duty.
We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.
