On this sad day, the officers and members of the PBS join countless others in giving thanks to Almighty God for life and Reign of Queen Elizabeth II. We especially give thanks for her many years of service, and for her devotion and duty to this country and the peoples of the world.
O LORD our Heavenly Father, Almighty and Everlasting God, by whom kings reign and princes decree justice: We remember before thee our late Sovereign, QUEEN ELIZABETH in thankfulness for the blessings which thou hast bestowed upon us by her reign; for the example she set of unwearied devotion to duty; and for the love and loyalty borne to her by a great family of peoples in all parts of the world. And we beseech thee to give us grace that, having these thy mercies in remembrance, we may with one heart and one mind set forward the welfare of this land and Commonwealth, and hasten the coming of thy kingdom of peace and goodwill among men; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
