Thy Kingdom Come: join us in prayer from 13 to 23 May
From 13 – 23 May, Christians around the world will be praying for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. This major prayer movement between Ascension and Pentecost is called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
Our new diocesan vision is ‘for every Londoner to encounter the love of God in Christ’. As people contemplate life’s big questions over this pandemic, process heartache and search for hope, we want to pray that they encounter the love of Christ.
As a diocese we are marking Thy Kingdom Come 2021 with two interactive activities:
1) Morning Prayer
Our senior clergy warmly invite you to join them in Morning Prayer every day on Facebook at 8.30am. You can pray along using the liturgy and prayers found in the TKC booklet.
2) A 24/10 prayer vigil
We would love Christians across the diocese to sign up for an hour slot in our virtual prayer room, so that we can continuously pray 24 hours a day, for 10 days. You could sign up as an individual, as a church, or as a group (youth group, small group, prayer triplet…).
Sign up for your prayer slot here
During your hour of prayer, you could:
- Use this prayer guide to take you through the hour
- Go for a prayer walk, and pray for particular things you see on your walk – people, households, venues
- Pray for 5 friends, family, neighbours, colleagues – who live their lives not knowing the love of Jesus
If your church or group would be willing to share their prayer time live on Facebook, so that others can join in, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Prayer Walk app
There is a new app – the Oikos Prayer+ App – which invites people to turn their local daily walk into a prayer walk. The app allows users to pin areas they have prayed for, with the aim of praying for the whole nation. Find out more.
