Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. Since 2016, it has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

Through the centuries, Christians have gathered during the 11 days from Ascension Day to Pentecost to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Thy Kingdom Come picks up this tradition. It’s hoped that everyone who takes part will deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and come to realize that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer.

You can participate in a number of ways, from simply saying a prayer each day to organizing and taking part in events in their parishes. Thy Kingdom Come’s website provides plenty of resources, including videos, podcasts, daily readings and prayers.

Parish involvement

While there’s no doubt most of us realize we need to pray more and that prayer is the foundation for God’s mission, we may wonder: how can I manage one more thing?

Whether your congregation commits to praying for five people each or you develop a Pentecost prayer room, whether you’re planning a sermon series or a prayer concert, prayer walks or a prayer vigil, you’re living out our ancient prayer: Thy kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.

Don’t hesitate because your resources are limited – jump in where you can.
