Prayer for King Charles

Gracious God, we pray for King Charles. 

In this time of sadness and sorrow, we pray that he might know your presence with him. Grant to him time to reflect and rest, and may he know your peace. 

We thank you for him and we ask that as you were with his mother, so might you lead and bless him. 

We thank you for the gifts you have given him and the years of public service he has already given. 

May he have wisdom in his decision-making; enable him to lead well and give him advisors of insight and integrity. 

Give him the energy he needs and may he be a voice for hope and justice. 

May he run the race well and point others to the love of God. 

Lord, bless King Charles. 

In Jesus’ name,
