Eternal and ever-reigning God,
you created the heavens and the earth
and hold all things in the palm of your hand.
You call us to work with you,
in the ordering of society
and the flourishing of life.
We pray for Charles as he is anointed and crowned King.
Give him wisdom, love and understanding
enabling him to work for the good of all.
May he inspire, encourage and support those he serves,
and be a model of grace, justice and mercy.
We pray too for Camilla as she is anointed and crowned Queen
for William and all their family, and for all who support them
in their service to the people of this land, and the commonwealth of nations.
As we celebrate our community life,
give us hearts for gratitude and celebration,
a desire to enjoy all life’s benefits with our neighbours,
and voices to sing with joy for all your gifts to us,
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
