    We are all saddened to hear of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

    On Sunday prayers will be said for our Queen and the Royal Family, and we shall stand together to honour his memory and give thanks for his service.

    Loving God,
    We come before you today in mourning for the loss of Prince Philip.
    We thank you for his long and fruitful life and for all that he stood for in dedication and service to others.
    We thank you for his public and charity work, and for his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
    We thank you for his unfailing love and support of Her Majesty the Queen over 73 years of marriage, and we ask that today you will comfort and uphold Her Majesty and all Prince Philip’s family and friends.
    Be their strength and hope today and always. 
    We pray in the name of our Risen Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

    Coronavirus - Cumbrian Prayer

    Loving God, as your Son healed the sick
    And brought good news to the needy
    Be with us this day.
    Loving Jesus as you taught us to
    'Do unto others as you would have them do to you'
    Be with all the medical staff this day.
    Loving spirit, your gift is healing,
    Bring your healing fire to our homes, our hospitals and our county,
    But most of all, be with us this day. Amen

    The Cumbria Ecumenical Spirituality Group.
