Sunday 13th September: Mass at Warwick Street – Prayer for HM The Queen
At Mass this morning, this prayer was said for HM The Queen in honour of her becoming our longest reigning monarch:
V. O Lord, save Elizabeth our Queen.
R. And hear us on the day we call upon thee.
V. Lord, hear my prayer.
R. And let my cry come before thee.
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Almighty God, we pray that Elizabeth thy Servant and our Queen, who, by thy providence has received the governance of this Realm, may continue to grow in every virtue, that, imbued with thy heavenly grace, she may be preserved from all that is harmful and evil, and being blessed with thy favour may, with her Consort and all the Royal Family, come at last into thy presence, through Him that is the Way, the Truth and the Life, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever. Amen.
