Diamond Jubilee Prayer for the Queen

June 2, 2012

As part of the celebrations for The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, a Service of Thanksgiving will be held on June 5 at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, England. At the Queen’s direction, the following “Diamond Jubilee Prayer” will be used at the service, having been published by the Chapter of St. Paul’s Cathedral and commended by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. It will be part of our prayers at both of tomorrow’s Services, and I invite us to include it in our regular lifting up of Her Majesty in our prayers at home.

God of time and eternity,
whose Son reigns as servant, not master;
we give you thanks and praise
that you have blessed this Nation, the Realms and Territories
with ELIZABETH,
our beloved and glorious Queen.
In this year of Jubilee,
grant her your gifts of love and joy and peace
as she continues in faithful obedience to you, her Lord and God
and in devoted service to her lands and peoples,
and those of the Commonwealth,
now and all the days of her life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen.
