Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Kingdom Come is a global event initiated by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and supported by the leaders of other Christian denominations. It is a period of devotional prayer (a novena).
Thy Kingdom Come began in 2016 and this year it begins on 13 May 2021, Ascension Day.
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
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.
