THY KINGDOM COME/PLEDGE 2 PRAY

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer. The hope is that:
  • people will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family - as a church, individually or as a family;

  • churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world;

  • people will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
  • Resources to help run a 24/7 prayer room in a church, chaplaincy, retreat house or school;
  • Guides to hosting other special events, such as Beacon Events
  • Blogs on topics including how to pray for others, how to get started in prayer, encouraging others in prayer etc.
  • Downloadable inspirational videos
  • Booklets, ‘pray for five’ bands, posters and more to use during the ten days of prayer
 As with all great movements, praying is the most effective way to prepare for Thy Kingdom Come. Be assured of the prayers of many others as you plan, prepare, pray and act.




"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
“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
