Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invitesChristians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for morepeople to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from theArchbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international andecumenical call to prayer.
The hope is that:
- people will commit to pray with Gods world-widefamily - as a church, individually or as a family;
- people will be empowered through prayer by theHoly Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
Archbishop Justin Welby says:
I cannot remember in my lifeanything that Ive been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work ofthe Spirit. In praying Thy Kingdom Come we all commit to playing our part inthe renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities.
Across the Diocese, we are encouraging parishes anddeaneries to set up prayer stations and hold prayer walks and events. Therewill also be two events on Pentecost Sunday, 20 May to which everyone isinvited a Praying for Dudley event in Priory Ruins at 2.30pm and a service topray for the whole diocese in the Cathedral at 6.30pm.
Please come and support us at these events.
