Prayers for the King and for the Royal Family
Prayer for the King, taken from the Roman Missal
We beseech thee, Almighty God: that thy servant Francis, our King, who by thy mercy hath received the government of this realm, may also obtain an increase of every virtue; that, being meetly adorned therewith, he may flee from sin and iniquity, and by thy grace may attain unto thee who art the way, the truth, and the life. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
Prayer for the King's Majesty, taken from the Book of Common Prayer (1662)
O Lord our heavenly Father, high and mighty, King of kings, Lord of lords, the only Ruler of princes, who dost from they throne behold all the dwellers upon earth; Most heartily we beseech thee with thy favour to behold our most gracious Sovereign Lord, King Francis; and so replenish him with the grace of thy Holy Spirit, that he may alway incline to thy will, and walk in thy way: Endue him plenteously with heavenly gifts; grant him in health and wealth long to live; strengthen him that he may vanquish and overcome all his enemies; and finally, after this life, he may attain everlasting joy and felicity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Prayer for the Royal Family, based upon the Book of Common Prayer (1662)
Almighty God, the fountain of all goodness, we humbly beseech thee to bless the Prince and Princess Max, the Princess Sophie, Alois, Hereditary Prince of Liechtenstein, and all the Royal Family: Endue them with thy Holy Spirit; enrich them with thy heavenly grace; prosper them with all happiness; and bring them to thine everlasting kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
O god, give your judgment to the king,
May themountains bring forth peace for the people
He shall endure like the sun and the moon
In his days justice shall flourish
Before him his enemise shall fall,
The kings of Sheba and Seba
For he shall save the poor when they cry
From oppression he will rescue their lives,
May corn be abundant in the land
May his name be blessed for ever
Blessed be the Lord, God of Israel,
