To mark the 60th Anniversary of the Coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II a special prayer has been written by Westminster Abbey.
at the hands of priests and prophets
you anoint your chosen servants with the oil of gladness
and strengthen them with the gifts of your Holy Spirit:
accept our joyful praise as with united voice
we give thanks for the long and glorious reign
of our Sovereign Lady Queen Elizabeth.
Renewing your blessings, pour on her your choicest gifts,
and on all your people the spirit of humility and mutual service
shown in the life and death of him who is the anointed King of all,
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.
We are most grateful for people submitting contributions for the Diocesan Prayer Diary.
The Diary is now produced one month in advance and this will make it even easier for these issues to be included in your prayers when organising your orders of service.
Thank you for your support and if you have any further comments, suggestions or prayer requests please forward these to us by email
