Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.
Since its start in May 2016, 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.
Whilst it is an Anglican initiative, Christians from many different traditions (Catholic, Methodist, Baptist, Coptic…) take part in it. The period from Ascension to Pentecost has long been understood as a very specific and unique period in the Church Year. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ provides a set of ideas and resources to enable individuals and communities to dedicate this period as a time of spiritual growth and evangelistic outreach.
Reverend Canon Chris Russell, the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Advisor on Evangelism and Witness writes:
"Every single day hundreds of millions of our brothers and sisters around the world say the prayer Jesus put on our lips, praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’. In the past few years, the focus of our prayers in these days between Ascension and Pentecost has been for the coming of the God’s Kingdom in the lives of family and friends, neighbours and colleagues that they might come to faith.
This year as we pray for others, we pray that they would come to know Christ so that they may come to give their lives to serve God’s Kingdom. We will once again encourage every person taking part in TKC to pray for 5 others who don’t know the love of Christ and then to resolve to invite them along to something appropriate once our church buildings are reopened. All this prayer is reliant and expectant that the Holy Spirit would draw more and more to encounter God’s love in Christ, so we might be and bring the difference in the world he sends us to stake everything on. "
There are a great many prayer resources on the Thy Kingdom Come website as well as items for all the family to share and details of an app which can be downloaded from Google Play or the Apple Store.
