A Prayer for the Duke of Edinburgh
‘Well done, thou good and faithful servant: enter
Thou into the joy of thy lord.’ (Matthew 25.21)
God of majesty,
give rest to your servant Philip
who, having served his Queen and Country,
has passed from this life,
full of years yet strong in spirit.
As we give thanks for his life,
as Prince and Husband,
as Consort and family man,
we pray that all that he has done
may continue to bear fruit
in the lives of individuals
and the life of this nation,
to your honour and glory,
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
