Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which people around the world are invited to join. The wave of prayer will start on May 10 – 20.
For the last two years, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited people to join a wave of prayer from Ascension to Pentecost. This is traditionally a time when the church focuses on prayer, just as the first disciples did after they had watched Jesus ascend into heaven. As it says in Acts 1:14. “they all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus.”
The response to this invitation has been overwhelming as hundreds of thousands joined in from churches of many denominations and different traditions across the world.
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
It’s not complicated – we’re simply asking people to pray in whatever way they want and with whoever they want for others to come to know Jesus Christ.
Our aims are:
For people to pray with God’s world-wide family from May 10th – 20th: individually, as a family or as part of a church, and together as a diocesan family at a kick off event: Wednesday May 9, 2018 at Christ Church – St. James beginning at 7:30 p.m.
For people to participate in morning prayer during the weekdays from May 10th – 20th from 9:00 – 9:30 A.M.
For people to pray either using the resources provided for a more structured prayer time or to devote their personal prayer time.
For people to be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
