Thy Kingdom Come, May 30 – June 8, 2019

Title:Thy Kingdom Come, May 30 – June 8, 2019

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement started by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby in 2016.It has since become global and ecumenical; last year, Christians from 65 denominations in 114 countries prayed together for the whole world to come to know Jesus Christ.

The Archbishop invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost starting May 30 (until June 9) for more people to come to know Jesus. 

Join the worldwide prayer movement by going to and signing up to spend time in prayer for these eleven days. 

The Way of Love, the rule of life that helps us to live fully, includes prayer as one of its disciplines. The days between Ascension and Pentecost mark a traditional time of prayer in the Church, beginning with the first disciples who went back to Jerusalem after Jesus ascended. They spent their time in prayer as they waited for the coming of the Holy Spirit. These days give us the opportunity to focus on prayer as one of the blessings and disciplines that we Christians share as part of the body of Christ

This year Catherine would like you to consider hosting a prayer service at your house or the Parish House during the Thy Kingdom Come prayer initiative beginning on Thursday May 30th until Pentecost, June 9. Choose five people to pray for. Please let Catherine know of your plans.

So, how do you get people to pray for five others ?
