PRAYER FOR QUEEN ELIZABETH II ON THE OCCASION OF HER BECOMING THE LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH IN BRITISH HISTORY

V. O Lord, save Elizabeth our Queen.

R. And hear us on the day we call upon you.

V. Lord, hear my prayer.

R. And let my cry come before you.

V. The Lord be with you.

R. And with your Spirit.

 

Almighty God, we pray that Elizabeth your Servant and Our Queen, who, by your providence has received the governance of this Realm, may continue to grow in every virtue, that, imbued with your heavenly grace, she may be preserved from all that is harmful and evil, and being blessed with your favour may, with her Consort and all the Royal Family, come at last into your presence, through him who is the Way, the Truth and the Life, Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God, for ever and ever. Amen.

PRAYERS FOR THE MEMORIAL OF ST LAURENCE, MARTYR

Prayers for the Memorial of St Laurence, Martyr (10th August)

V.Open-handed, he gave to the poor.

R. His justice stands firm for ever.

• I do not deny you, my God, upon the gridiron; when placed on the fire, I praised you, O Christ. You searched my heart, you visited me by night; you tested me by fire, and you found in me no wrong.

• When blessed Laurence was being burned upon the gridiron, he said to the cruel tyrant, “It is now cooked, turn me over and eat; for the hands of the poor have carried away the riches of the Church which you are seeking, to the treasury of heaven.”

Let us pray. Almighty God, quench in us the fires of passion, since you gave blessed Laurence the strength to overcome the flames of his suffering. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.

PRAYING FOR ONE’S ENEMIES: ALMIGHTY GOD, HAVE MERCY

Prayer of St Thomas More for His Opponents

Almighty God,

have mercy on N. and N. [names],

and on all that bear me evil will and would me harm,

and their faults and mine together,

by such easy, tender, merciful means as thine infinite wisdom best can devise;

vouchsafe to amend and redress and make us saved souls in heaven together,

where we may ever live and love

together with thee and thy blessed saints,

O glorious Trinity,

for the bitter passion of our sweet Saviour. Amen.
