“Thy Kindgom Come”
A few years ago, Archbishop Justin Welby suggested we pray for the eleven days from Ascension Day to Pentecost Sunday. He thought we might fill a cathedral. In 3 years, it has become a global movement of prayer and reflection.
25th MayDuring the 11 days of “Thy Kingdom Come”, that is from May 21st (Ascension Day) to May 31st(Pentecost Sunday), it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:
- Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ
- Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus
- Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness
The Daily Devotions for the next two weeks are centred around this prayer event. And from Thursday until a week on Sunday the reflections are those based on the resources provided by the “Thy Kingdom Come” movement of the Church of England.
