I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank You for giving England such a strong Christian leader who served you faithfully for so many years. We pray that You would be with her family and the people of the United Kingdom at this trying time.

England’s longest-serving monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, has passed away. Let’s remember her legacy and thank God for her faithful service.

From BBC. Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral aged 96, after reigning for 70 years.

Who is praying on the wall?

 

Her family gathered at her Scottish estate after concerns grew about her health earlier on Thursday.

The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and witnessed enormous social change.

With her death, her eldest son Charles, the former Prince of Wales, will lead the country in mourning as the new King and head of state for 14 Commonwealth realms.

In a statement, His Majesty The King said: “The death of my beloved mother Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.

“We mourn profoundly the passing of a cherished Sovereign and a much-loved Mother. I know her loss will be deeply felt throughout the country, the Realms and the Commonwealth, and by countless people around the world.”

He said during the period of mourning and change he and his family would be “comforted and sustained by our knowledge of the respect and deep affection in which The Queen was so widely held”.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “The Queen died peacefully at Balmoral this afternoon.

“The King and the Queen Consort will remain at Balmoral this evening and will return to London tomorrow.” …

Queen Elizabeth II’s tenure as head of state spanned post-war austerity, the transition from empire to Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War and the UK’s entry into – and withdrawal from – the European Union.

Her reign spanned 15 prime ministers starting with Winston Churchill, born in 1874, and including Liz Truss, born 101 years later in 1975, and appointed by the Queen earlier this week. …

At Buckingham Palace in London, crowds awaiting updates on the Queen’s condition began crying as they heard of her death. The Union flag on top of the palace was lowered to half-mast at 18:30 BST. …

From The Washington Times. The late Queen Elizabeth II, who served longer than any other British monarch, was a woman of deep personal faith who set a lifelong example of belief.

Addressing Britain and the world on Christmas Day in 2016, she declared her faith openly: “Billions of people now follow Christ’s teaching and find in him the guiding light for their lives. I am one of them because Christ’s example helps me see the value of doing small things with great love, whoever does them and whatever they themselves believe.”

In what turned out to be her final Christmas message, viewed globally on Dec. 25, 2021, the queen said Christ’s teachings “have been the bedrock of my faith,” a declaration made months after the April death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, her husband of 73 years. …

“Her faith is a real cornerstone of her life. She isn’t showy about it. It helps guide her really every day,” biographer Sally Bedell Smith told The Washington Times. “And heaven only knows it has helped her endure any number of setbacks that have occurred to her during her life.”

When Queen Elizabeth, who reigned for 70 years, was a youngster, Mrs. Smith said, “she prayed every morning with her mother in their chapel in Scotland that was part of [Balmoral] Castle. Her mother taught her Bible stories.”

Robert Hardman, a British journalist who has written several biographies of Elizabeth, said religion is “absolutely key and central to who she is. She’s probably the one person in British national life — the one lay person in public life — who is internally confident discussing their faith.” …

During her lifetime, she endured the unexpected death of her father, King George VI, when she was 25, her subsequent accession to the throne, family issues involving her sister, Princess Margaret, and divorces for three of her four children, including Prince Charles, who succeeds her.

The queen also had to navigate the aftermath of the fatal August 1997 automobile crash that took the life of Diana, Princess of Wales, who remained a part of the family after her divorce from Prince Charles and was the mother of the queen’s grandsons Princes William — now first in line to the throne — and Harry. Nearly a quarter century later, she lost her husband.

The queen often said her faith saw her through such times of difficulty and tragedy. Matthew Dennison, the author of a 2021 biography, told The Washington Times that Elizabeth’s annual Christmas messages since 2000 were “much more about her own Christian faith and the Christ teachings as a kind of guide to life that is available to everybody. She says in one of the broadcasts that [this] guide is something that is available to everybody at no cost. And that’s the example of Christ’s life.” …

The Right Rev. Geoffrey Fisher, the archbishop of Canterbury and primate of the Church of England, prepared Elizabeth for the spiritual aspects of her 1953 coronation ceremony. He explained “to the queen that after that moment, she would never be the same again,” said Mr. Dennison, her most recent biographer.

That coronation — the first to be televised and the first to be viewed globally — included an anointing ceremony called the Act of Consecration, in which the monarch, clothed in “a dress of purest white,” sat under a golden canopy and was anointed with oil on her head and her chest by Archbishop Fisher, who declared, “Be thy head anointed with holy oil: as kings, priests and prophets were anointed.” …

Lord I lift King Charles to you for salvation. He needs You more than he knows. I pray Lord that You use him for Your will to be done. You have changed the minds of Kings, nothing is to hard for You. May anything that advances Your kingdom be allowed and any decisions that blocks Your kingdom be denied. We know it is Your battle and we want to see Your will done on earth as it is in heaven.

What a grand woman she was. We thank you Lord for her wisdom through the years and her humble display of righteousness and service through out her life. Even in her last few days before passing, she rose from her bed to greet and publicly endorse the new conservative Prime Minister whom she supported. It was her last act to attempt to put a block against the evil, liberal agenda pervasive in the UK government and even in her own family. Father God save the UK and we pray for the time when William and his family will lead the country, that they will be righteous and seek your face in all things.

Father, we lift up Charles as he now is the monarch to rule England. May he have your wisdom and find his faith resting in you, as was true with his mother. The world is in awful shape Lord, guide him through the maze of problems and give him strength. Guide him and bless England at this time.

We definitely must pray for King Charles, not just because of his new position. We must pray for Charles because he is aligned with the Deep State. He not only is involved with the World Economic Forum but is deeply connected to pedophilia. Father, we pray you will continue to expose and uproot the evil in America and the world. May the outpouring of your Spirit of truth be known and many be saved. In the mighty name of Jesus…so be it.

I am so glad that Queen Elizabeth had a personal relationship with our Lord, Jesus; that her faith sustained her and that she set such an awesome example of a steafast Christian faith. May she rest in the peace and glory of her new life with Christ. May our Lord give her family peace. A great lady has passed over.

I remember the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II on 2 June, 1953. It made a powerful, positive impression on my 9-year old heart. It was especially meaningful because our (American) family was living on an Army base among the Queen’s subjects with the British Commonwealth of Forces occupying Japan after World War 2. My father was there as a scientist studying the effects of the A-bomb on Japanese children but the fathers of all my friends on the base were military personnel from the UK, Australia, New Zealand–and the United States, working together to rebuild the country of our former enemy and help them establish a Democratic government.

We heard about the coronation on the radio and saw black-and-white photos in the Army base newspaper. There was great joy, excitement and celebration among her subjects. I was also struck by pictures of Elizabeth and her younger sister Margaret as children, impressed that they had been little girls just like we were.

Carol Exton Johns, one of those elementary-school friends, back in Australia, now a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother in Port Kennedy, just Messaged me, “Thank you Jessica and Jerry for your condolences on the death of our Queen. She has been a part of my life ever since I was born. She was a great friend of America and I remember her breaking with a 500 year old tradition for the Coal Stream Guard band to play your anthem at Buckingham Palace after 9/11 in the courtyard with a huge group of Americans outside the gate. I saw it played again today on Newsmax.”
