Hearing the news of the Queens passing, bore the fulfilment of a promise she made at 21 from a broadcast in Cape Town, that in becoming Monarch, she would faithfully serve her country for the whole of her life. She did just that for over 70 years. She was the leader of the commonwealth some 54 countries, and 2.5 billion people called her Queen, she also undertook more than 21,000 engagements during her reign.
Romans 13:1 says ‘There is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God’. (ESV).
The Queens faith was very clear, and during her Christmas Day speeches, she was clearly an evangelist for Jesus. As we see succession of this earthly throne pass, and proclaim God save the King, let’s pray to our Eternal King, that Charles III, will indeed come to know the same faith his mother had in Jesus.
Quote Today we salute the most influential evangelist of our time, The Queen.
Prayer Father, thank you for the life of Queen Elizabeth and we pray for Charles to know you as Lord, Amen.
The passing of the Queen, will open many conversations with people around use, seize the opportunity to include God in what you speak of.
