Following the death today of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh let us give thanks for his life and commend him to his Lord and Maker
Well done, thou good and faithful servant: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord ( Matthew 25 v 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.
