Thy Kingdom Come: May 21st-31st

 

 

  We’ve been working our way through the Lord’s Prayer. Now here is the chance to pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ joining with Christians around the world. Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

  You can go straight to the website https://www.thykingdomcome.global/lightuptheworld or read on here and we’ll signpost you to different things. It is prayer that those who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and his love for the world will hear it for themselves, and respond and follow Him.

     During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, 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

  So let’s take part. Here are some ways that look good:

  2. There’s a prayer journal to use with reflections, Bible verses, actions and art work. Download here /content/pages/documents/1589555455.pdf
  3. Pray together with others: perhaps agree a time when you will all pray, or meet on Zoom or Skype so you can see each other as well
  4. Download the Kingdom kit  here /content/pages/documents/1589555489.pdf  and read about it here https://www.thykingdomcome.global/resources/kingdom-kit You won’t have time to order the kit but most will have all the necessary bits and bobs around the home.
  5. Create a prayer space at home https://www.prayerspacesinschools.com/prayer-spaces-at-home
  6. Use these 9 days of prayer  /content/pages/documents/1589555455.pdf
