Thy Kingdom Come – May 21st-31st: a call to prayer and witness
THY KINGDOM COME
This year, Thy Kingdom Come will be different, but we’re all invited to get involved! See below a list of Inverness Churches which are participating. And visit the Thy Kingdom Come Inverness Facebook page
Thy Kingdom Come is an interdenominational movement of prayer, begun by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016. It calls people to a focused time of prayer between the festivals of Ascension and Pentecost (May 21st to May 31st 2020), that people may hear and respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Since its start in May 2016, just four ago, God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of possibility into a movement. In 2019 Christians from 172 countries took part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
We are all invited to pray for people we know who are struggling, asking God to bless them, help them, and enable them to encounter Jesus.
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
There’s a list of suggestions here about how churches can be involved despite COVID-19 and there is an additional emphasis this year on showing practical care to those we are praying for. There are some ideas about how best to do this here
