His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

The President and Vice-President of the Methodist Conference have made the following statement in response to the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

The Revd Richard Teal and Carolyn Lawrence said: "We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. We will remember Prince Philip's dedicated support of Her Majesty The Queen for over 70 years, and his long and exceptional service to the country and to the Commonwealth. We thank God for the Duke's commitment to hundreds of voluntary organisations and the positive impact his Award Scheme has had on the lives of millions of young people.

In her grief, we pray that the Queen will be comforted by her strong faith in the days and weeks ahead and we extend our condolences to her and all of the Royal Family"

A prayer for Prince Philip

Lord God

We give thanks for the long life of Prince Philip, for all that he has contributed to our nation and beyond, and for his support of our Queen. We pray that he will be at rest trusting in the grace of God.

We remember before you Her Majesty the Queen and her family praying that they will know your comfort and strength in the days to come.

In Jesus' name, Amen.

The President and Vice-President of the Conference
