A modern-language prayer drawing on Philippians 2

Almighty God,
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.
