Thy Kingdom Come 2017
Thy Kingdom Come is a global Week of Prayer, from 25 May – 4 June, inviting people all over the world to gather and pray for more people to come to know Jesus. As in past years, we are encouraging people across the Diocese to engage in the Week of Prayer, praying for their friends and family, whether that be individually, as a family or corporately as church together.
Could you, your family or your church take an active part in this year’s Week of Prayer? We have already heard of several churches in London with plans to pray during Thy Kingdom Come. The Thy Kingdom Come website has a whole range of resources to help you pray, from creative prayer journals, to daily scripture readings, and family resources.
You will also find a multitude of resources on the website to help you plan and prepare for prayer events in your parish. Whether it’s a prayer walk around the local estate or an all-night prayer vigil, we would love to hear of London churches putting on events during this Week of Prayer.
If your church is hosting an event for the Week of Prayer, please do list it on the Thy Kingdom Come Events Map.
There is a host of events happening at St Paul’s Cathedral during the week, including a Messy Cathedral, a youth prayer event, prayer stations throughout the week, and a celebration event on the evening of Saturday 3 June.
To register your participation in the Week of Prayer, you can Pledge2Pray as an individual, a family or a church, and show your light on a map of people praying around the globe.
You can order Thy Kingdom Come resources, such as a Kingdom Kit to encourage children to engage in prayer, and a Bright Prayer Ideas home pack.
We encourage you to take part in this global wave of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost, to pray for those around you who don’t yet know Jesus. You will be able to find out about events happening in your area through the Thy Kingdom Come website, and be sure to register any events which you are planning.
