A LoveWorld member and Nigerian CCM star, Sinach, also sent condolences on her Instagram page. She wrote:

Another Instagram post about the Queen was from Dolly Parton, a Christian and country music luminary. She shared an unforgettable memory and a picture of her meeting the Queen in 1977: 

“I had the honor of meeting and performing for Queen Elizabeth II on my trip to London in 1977. She carried herself with grace and strength her entire life. May she Rest In Peace. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.”

Travis Greene

Five times Grammy nominee wrote about Queen Elizabeth II:

“My thoughts and prayers are with my friends and family across the pond, as you mourn the loss of your beloved Queen. May the peace of God be with England and the strength of God be with those closest to her.” 

Matt Redman

An English Christian singer-songwriter and an author of the two-time Grammy-winning hit “10,000 reasons” also joined the mourning.  Matt Redman wrote about the Queen on all his social media with a full message on Facebook and Instagram:

“I cannot lead you into battle, I do not give you laws or administer justice, but I can do something else, I can give you my heart and my devotion.”

This quote from the Queen’s 1957 Christmas broadcast sums it all up for me. A life lived so well, before God, with a beautiful mix of duty and devotion. Royal, yet servant-hearted.
Regal, yet hard-working. Crowned, yet kind.

In an age where character no longer seems to be king, I’m so grateful that this steadfast, faithful, and dedicated follower of Christ was our Queen. I join my voice today to the millions of others mourning the loss of Queen Elizabeth II and celebrating her inspiring legacy. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.”

Tasha Layton

The rising star in Christian contemporary music posted on Facebook how Elizabeth II impacted the singer:

“Each day is a new beginning, I know that the only way to live my life is to try to do what is right, to take the long view, to give of my best in all that the day brings, and to put my trust in God.”

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

What an incredible life of duty, faithfulness, and devotion. She was such an inspiration to me even from the time I was a little girl. Integrity, dignity… not growing weary in well doing. Rest In Peace.”

Queen Elizabeth II was a true believer

The Queen was deeply religious until her last days. Taking the throne in 1952, she also became a Supreme Governor of the Church of England. 

Throughout her life, Queen Elizabeth II demonstrated great support for inter-faith relations. She often talked about her relationship with faith when addressing the Commonwealth on Christmas every year. 

Queen Elizabeth II marked history for several generations in Great Britain and abroad. Being on the throne for 70 years, she was the world’s longest reigning queen. The Queen is also the longest-reigning monarch after King Louis XIV who ruled France for 72 years.
