Today (Wednesday 9 September) and the following Sunday, the following prayer will be offered with the long reign of the Queen in mind.
A modern-language prayer drawing on Philippians 2
whose Son Jesus Christ exchanged the glory of a heavenly throne for the form of a servant,
we thank you that you have given Elizabeth our Queen a heart to serve her people,
and have kept her devoted in this service beyond all who were before her:
encourage us by her example to serve one another, and to seek the common good,
until you call us all to reign with Christ in your eternal kingdom.
