The Archbishop of Canterbury’s prayer initiative: “Thy Kingdom Come”
The Archbishop of Canterbury invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension Day through Pentecost Sunday for more people to know Jesus in a closer and more personal way. This initiative is called “Thy Kingdom Come” and is a focused time of prayer. We are invited to deepen our own relationship with Jesus Christ. We are invited to pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus. And to pray for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit that we would be effective in our witness. There is a dedicated website for this initiative on which you will find all kinds of resources for adults, children, and families. Among other things, you’ll find videos, songs, and a very good prayer journal you can download for use through these days.
The site is www.thykingdomcome.global. Check it out!
