HRH Prince William is the 2nd in line to the British Throne after his father, HRH Prince Charles. Having lost their mother tragically when they were both children, they have needed the strength and friendship that brotherhood provides. They live in Kensington Palace, as neighbours.
‘So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.’ 1 Thessalonians 5:11 NLT
‘If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.’ James 1:5 NIV
Thank you, Lord, that you give us siblings- brothers and sisters in one family. Thank you for the common bond that this provides as we grow up. Thank you particularly for these Royal brothers and how the challenges that they have faced growing up has brought them closer together.
We pray that as they spend time together as brothers, that they would continue to encourage one another. Bring encouragement where it is needed – not just in their royal duties, but in their relationships with those that are close to them. Give them good communication between them, as they bounce ideas and plans between them, privately. For the Royal Household staff who support them behind the scenes, we pray for good communication, discretion, and wisdom as they assist planning and logistics.
As they spend time with their father, HRH Prince of Wales, we pray that they would be an encouragement to him and have the right perspective of the things in the past. If there needs to be any forgiveness in the relationship, we pray that this would flow freely and bring a special sense of unity as a family unit. As their families grow and change, we pray that there would be special times of meeting together in privacy to laugh, smile and share stories of life between them.
Being heirs to the British Throne, we pray that they would glean information and ideas from one another, learning from history and looking forward to what the monarchy could look like in the future. Keeping their eye on the world, may their discussions about world events, countries, leaders, and national issues be informed. Help them to know what perspective to take on these issues as they plan their royal duties, b0th nationally and internationally.
Father God, you are so gracious, and we ask that you would gladly give an abundance of wisdom to Prince William and Prince Harry. In their position, as heirs, and as part of the Royal family, they are looked to as role models, people of influence and with great standing in the nation and internationally too. With that pressure and intensity, we pray for wisdom to guard their speech and actions, both privately and publically. Guard them as brothers. Protect their bodies and minds from things that would affect this brotherly relationship.
We ask this in Jesus’ name,
