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 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
Thy Kingdom Come begins on Ascension Day and continues until Pentecost. This year it is Thursday 21st May – Thursday 31st May.
How can I get involved?
- Commit to praying for five people you know to come to know the love, peace and hope of Jesus and experience the difference he makes in their lives. Choose one of these people and consider how you might safely and responsibly demonstrate Jesus’ love practically. There’s a flier with prayer suggestions and space for you to write the names of the five people you are praying for here: Pray for 5 friends

Thy Kingdom Come is a wonderful opportunity for us to focus on praying for those we know to experience the love of Jesus, especially during this time of pandemic and uncertainty.
