Thy Kingdom Come
What is Thy Kingdom Come?
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. He is calling on Christians to pray that people might know Jesus Christ during a focused time between Ascension and Pentecost from 10-20 May 2018.
The hope is that:
people will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family - as a church, individually or as a family;
churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world;
people will be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
“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
Bespoke resources and information are available from www.thykingdomcome.global. This includes materials to download on prayer, liturgical resources, Novena booklets, a ‘Kingdom Kit’ helping families to pray together, details of prayer events and tips on organising local events. Everyone who signs up to ‘Pledge2Pray’ will receive regular email updates as well as inspiration and encouragement about prayer.
The message will be going out via social media and in the months running up to May 2018 we will be using the hashtags #Pledge2Pray and #ThyKingdomCome which we hope will spark a viral prayer response to the project.
