Thy Kingdom Come

Ascension to Pentecost Friday 10th May – Sunday 19th May

The Revd Jo Purle

Thy Kingdom Come (TKC) is a global ecumenical prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.

Since it began in May 2016, God has grown TKC from a dream of possibility into a movement which unites more than a million Christians in prayer, in nearly 90% of countries worldwide, across 85 different denominations and traditions - so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.

Every person, household and church is encouraged to pray during this period in their own way.

It is the hope & prayer, that those who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and His love for the world, will hear it for themselves and respond and follow Him.

Pray for 5

Specifically, each and every Christian across the globe is invited to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 people who have not responded with their ‘Yes’ to God’s call.

Thy Kingdom Come is all about praying for people to come to know the amazing, life-transforming love of Jesus. Everyone is encouraged to choose 5 people they know, and pray for them throughout this period and beyond.

There are so many ways you can pray for your 5. Find some suggestions by clicking on this link:

“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities."  - Archbishop Justin Welby
