Her ‘strength and stay all these years’

Apr 9, 2021 by

From Christian Concern:
Today, we mourn the loss of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, who died this morning at Windsor Castle. His was a life of dedicated service to his country and in particular to Her Majesty, the Queen. At their golden wedding anniversary in 1997, Queen Elizabeth called him her “strength and stay all these years”, and said “I, and his whole family and this and many other countries owe him a debt greater than he would ever claim, or we shall ever know”.
In a statement, Archbishop Justin Welby wrote that their marriage was sustained by “shared faith in Christ”. Royal photographer Arthur Edwards told Premier “He’s a good Christian man, he attends a church service most weeks and when I’ve watched him in church he doesn’t just sit there – he has his own private thoughts and prayers.”

Please give thanks with us for his life and pray for the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family to know the love, comfort and peace of God at this difficult time.

Archbishop Welby spoke of his very deep, solid and profound faith that was traditional but not formal, and expressed in disciplined humility. See here
