Thy Kingdom Come is a, yearly, global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus. You are invited to take part this year – along with churches from over 65 different denominations in 178 countries around the world.
 

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
 

During these difficult and trying times, we believe that now more than ever, presents an incredible opportunity for the Church worldwide, to unite in prayer so that our family, friends and neighbours will come to know the love and peace of Jesus Christ for themselves.
 

 
Thy Kingdom Come national week of prayer  21st-31st May, ending at Pentecost.

To help us pray through this time, at St Thomas' we will be running a scattered 24/7 prayer room from 11am on Sunday 24th May until 10am on Sunday 31st May.

If you haven't signed up for 24/7 prayer slot yet, why not find a friend or gather with your life group on zoom or some other way and arrange to pray together.

One of our key themes for this year's  Thy Kingdom Come  is prayer and care. As we are praying for those we love to come to know the hope and love of Christ we also are encouraging all to see how they can show God’s love towards them. By caring for them.
 

Care for those you are praying for, pray for those you are caring for

Here are 5 ideas on how we can care and love those we know, even when we are socially distanced:
 
  1. Keep up contact. Make a phone call, send an email, letter or card saying that you are praying for them at this time.
  2. Keep an eye out for the anniversaries of life events. Make that phone call to let people know you care.
  3. Send a small gift or book purchased on line, maybe insert life words etc.
  4. Serve where you can in delivering groceries or medications.

Make sure the people you pray for know how much you value them by whatever means you can find.
 

After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.

"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses …to the ends of the earth. When he had said this…he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight…Then they returned to Jerusalem … and were constantly devoting themselves to prayer… When the day of Pentecost had come they were all together in one place... All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit... and that day about three thousand persons were added." Acts 1, 2
