Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s remarkable reign was marked by an extraordinary commitment to service. She gave clear public expressions of her deep personal Christian faith and the hope of the gospel. The Rev. Bob Faris, Moderator of the 2022 General Assembly, is sending a letter to Queen Elizabeth’s family, extending the church’s condolences at her death and gratitude for her life and service.

Prayer for use during worship
Eternal God, before you all generations rise up and fall away, and in your grace, you provide leaders to serve and comfort us with wisdom and dedication. We give thanks for the life, Christian witness and service of Queen Elizabeth, whose earthly life is now ended and who has entered into the joy and peace you have prepared through Jesus Christ. We pray for her family and those who will take up her duties and responsibilities. Send your Holy Spirit to comfort and give peace to all who mourn her death and the death of any loved one.
Amen.
