Thy Kingdom Come
What is Thy Kingdom Come?
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
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
Southwark Resources for Thy Kingdom Come
The Mission Department have designed free resources to support churches in the Diocese of Southwark to open their churches for prayer, invite the public to make prayer requests and to organise prayer walks across the Parish. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to order packs of postcards and pocket prayers - you can also apply for £100 grant to create a prayer space or prayer station.
The message will be going out via social media and in the months running up to May 2019 we will be using the hashtags #Pledge2Pray and #ThyKingdomCome which we hope will spark a viral prayer response to the project.
