From the Bishop of Oxford
“Her Majesty the Queen has been our example and a rock for the nation and commonwealth… Her deep, personal Christian faith has been an inspiration to many, including me.”
A statement from the Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford.
A Prayer on the death of
Her Majesty the Queen
Gracious God, we give thanks
for the life of your servant Queen Elizabeth
for her faith and her dedication to duty.
Bless our nation as we mourn her death
and may her example continue to inspire us;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
