An Anthology of Royal Prayers.
This fascinating collection includes both prayers for royalty and prayers by royalty. Praying for the monarch is an accepted part of religious life and worship. There have always been prayers for kings and queens and these are evident in the scriptures and in the tradition of the Church; prayers by royals are not so obviously found but Donald Gray has discovered many interesting and intriguing examples making this anthology quite unique.
An original and high revealing introduction to the volume sets all the prayers in context and shows how they reflect the changing history of the times and the ever controversial relationship between church and state.
Donald Gray has been a Chaplain to the Queen since 1982.
