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.
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.
