From the 25th May to the 4th June this year, families and churches around the globe are praying for their communities to come to know Jesus.
Thy Kingdom Come is a prayer movement that was initiated by the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York last year. Together they invited the Church of England to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. The response spread beyond the Anglican Communion and Christians from many streams of the Church gathered to pray in their thousands. What began as a call to prayer for mission in the Church of England has become an international and ecumenical movement.
“I cannot remember in my life anything that I’ve been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit.” Archbishop Justin Welby
Where ever you are and whatever Church you’re a part of you can join in the Thy Kingdom Come movement. Join or host prayer events during the 10 days, including 24-7 Prayer Rooms, meetings, prayer walks and more. Many Cathedrals, churches and other venues are hosting Beacon Events, gathering people across towns and cities to worship, pray and ask the Holy Spirit’s help to effectively share their faith. Find out where your nearest Beacon event is and add your Amen to the prayer.
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses…” Acts 1:8
