Prayers for His Majesty King Charles III

The first is the prayer offered at the Requiem Mass for Her Majesty the Queen in Westminster Cathedral. The second is the prayer appointed to be said after the principal Mass on Sundays in England and Wales in the Old Missal.

O God, to whom every human power is subject,
Grant to your servant His Majesty King Charles
wisdom in the exercise of his high office,
so that, always revering you and striving to please you,
he may constantly secure and preserve
for the people entrusted to his care
the freedom that comes from unity and peace.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, forever and ever. 

R. Amen.

V. O Lord, save our King Charles.
R. And mercifully hear us, when we call upon thee.

Let us pray.
We beseech thee, O almighty God, that thy servant Charles, our King , who by thy mercy hath assumed the government of the kingdom, may likewise receive an increase of every strength, whereby becomingly endowed, he may be able to avoid the evils of vices (in time of war: to overcome his enemies), and with his Queen Consort and royal children, in all grace attain to thee who art the way, the truth, and the life. Through Christ our Lord.

R. Amen.

Comments are subject to deletion if they are not germane. I have no problem with a bit of colourful language, but blasphemy or depraved profanity will not be allowed. Attacks on the Catholic Faith will not be tolerated. Comments will be deleted that are republican (Yanks! Note the lower case 'r'!), attacks on the legitimacy of Pope Francis as the Vicar of Christ (I know he's a material heretic and a Protector of Perverts, and I definitely want him gone yesterday! However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
