Thy Kingdom Come 2019
Thy Kingdom Come is a prayer initiative led by the Church of England taking place between Ascension and Pentecost, Thursday 30th May to Sunday 9th June 2019.
In his letter to clergy of the diocese, Bishop Christopher wrote:
”This is a momentous year for our nation and together we face many challenges. The need for prayer, reconciliation and renewed evangelisation seems more relevant than ever. I want to invite you, therefore, to join with Christians of all denominations throughout the world to take time for prayer in the nine days between Ascension and Pentecost.
It is my hope that, as we do so, we will know the Holy Spirit praying through us, ‘Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done’, and empowering us to live what we pray.
During these days, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring others to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer.
Please join me as I focus my prayers in three areas:
Here at St Mary’s, prayer cards will be available from the Sunday before Ascension, 26th May.
On these cards you will be able to pledge to pray for others, along with cards for you to give out to friends and neighbours. Small pocket prayer booklets will also be available for those wishing to keep nine days of prayer in the workplace.
The prayer cards will then be brought forward for a Blessing at the main service at Pentecost.
‘Thy Kingdom Come’ will also be the focus of the Saturday Prayer Breakfast and Silent Prayer which fall in this period.
