A Republican prayer

Re: the Liturgical Commission’s Prayers for use when Elizabeth Windsor becomes the longest reigning monarch in British history (9 September 2015)

All-Loving G*d,
whose Son Jesus Christ was executed for sedition against imperial power,
we thank you that you created all the great diversity of humankind in your image,
and are every day building up your commonwealth on earth through the work of human hands:
move in the hearts of all your children to establish your order of equality for all,
that we may transform the unjust structures of society in service of the common good,
until not one beloved sibling languishes in poverty and distress. Amen.
