Queen Elizabeth leaves behind a powerful legacy, not least in championing friendship between people of all faiths and none, and the diverse peoples of the world. She always promoted development of the person, communities, structures, and social wellbeing.

For those who share a Christian faith, Queen Elizabeth’s own faith demonstrated throughout her life in her words and actions have been an inspiration.

A prayer in memory of Queen Elizabeth

Faithful God
We remember with thanksgiving and gratitude,
the life and service of Queen Elizabeth.
We have been inspired by her dedication and faith,
Her commitment to the welfare of our nation
And her lifelong devotion to the peoples of the Commonwealth.
As we pray for her family and with our nation,
May the integrity of her public service,
Her concern for the common good
And her steadfast commitment to good governance
Inspire all those in public office,
In UK and Commonwealth and across the world,
To uphold the rights of all peoples
In the pursuit of justice
And the interests of peace.


At this sad time for millions, we should never forget that Queen Elizabeth was a much-loved mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole Royal Family at this difficult time.
