Thy Kingdom ComeThursday 10th May 2018
The Global wave of Prayer
10th-20th May 2018
Praying that people come to know Jesus Christ
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.
During the 10 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring other to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer.
One of the things that individuals are being asked to being asked to do during this 10 days is to #pledgetopray. The idea is to pray for five friends. Choose five people you would regularly like to pray for and write their names down onto a list. If you’re not sure who to pray for, ask God to guide you as you choose. Once you have settled on 5 names, commit to praying for them regularly by praying the following:
in the face of Jesus Christ
your light and glory have blazed forth.
Send your Holy Spirit that I may share with my friends [here, name your friends]
the life of your Son and your love for all.
Strengthen me as a witness to that love
as I pledge to pray for them,
for your name’s sake. Amen.

“To have a week of prayer for Christian mission us just a wonderful thing. Please do join in before Pentecost, this drive to pray together for the gift of God’s spirit for our mission. We know how rich Pentecost is in the life of the Church from its beginning. That richness can be ours too-if we ask God for it.”
Cardinal Vincent Nichols
“I cannot remember in my life anything that I’ve been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit.”
