God of life and death,
We give you thanks for the life of Queen Elizabeth.
For her faithfulness,
her life of service,
and dedication to duty.
We pray for all who now mourn her,
particularly her family,
the people of the United Kingdom and many others around the world.
May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
