Thy Kingdom Come 30 May – 9 June

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.

What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England, has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

After the very first Ascension Day, the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ picks up this tradition.

During this period, let’s join with Christians from around the world to pray that the Holy Spirit would inspire and equip us to share Jesus with our friends and families and our communities.

Let’s pray that those who have not yet heard about Jesus and his love for the world will hear it for themselves and respond and follow Him. Specifically, Thy Kingdom Come are asking that we pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 friends who have not responded with their ‘Yes’ to God. Ask God to show you which 5 people in your life to dedicate your prayers to over the next couple of weeks – and then commit to pray every day.

We have the privilege of joining in with churches from over 65 different denominations in 114 countries around the world to pray Thy kingdom Come. Come Holy Spirit.

"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses…to the ends of the earth. When he had said this…he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight…Then they returned to Jerusalem…and were constantly devoting themselves to prayer…When the day of Pentecost had come they were all together in one place... All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit...and that day about three thousand persons were added." Acts 1, 2

“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities." Archbishop Justin Welby
