Thy Kingdom Come
‘Thy Kingdom Come’ 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 annual, 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 empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new
confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
Pray with us:
Our Father in heaven,
may your name indeed be hallowed.
May your kingdom come, your will be done,
as in heaven so in our nation;
as in heaven so in our fields and cities,
our homes and streets,
our schools and offices, our factories and clubs,
our hospitals and hospices;
as in heaven so in our church;
as in heaven so in our hearts and minds and spirit.
In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
