Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a prayer initiative led by Churches from the United Kingdom and all over the world. It is held each year between Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday.

2023 is the 8th year in which it has been held and it continues to grow, especially in its ecumenical reach of different churches and denominations involved.

The theme and logo Thy Kingdom Come is now established in many parts of the world as world networks of churches and denominations in 85 countries are praying at the same time, using the Lords Prayer with the intention of evangelisation. Resources of a very high quality are being produced in many different languages.

A key theme for individual Christians who #pledgetopray (Twitter thread) is 'Pray for Five'. Christians are praying for five people they know that at least one might become a follower of Jesus. Thy Kingdom Come is not prescriptive as to how that might happen and individual churches and groups of churches are encouraged to pray for their own ways of outreach.

Why not get involved in your church? There are some fabulous resources for individuals, families and churches on the website to help with this. Or you could just encourage your church to 'Pray for Five'. You can even make a video to let your community knowing you are praying. Take a look.
