Thy Kingdom Come is a worldwide prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost. Since its launch by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016, Christians from 172 countries and 65 denominations have taken part in praying for friends and family to come to faith in Jesus Christ. The Methodist Church in Britain has been a key ecumenical partner in Thy Kingdom Come since 2017.
The days between Ascension and Pentecost have always been full of expectation and anticipation. As the Lord Jesus ascended, he promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses. As they waited for the promise to be fulfilled they devoted themselves constantly to prayer (Acts 1 v14). So, the renewed call across the Church is to set these days apart to pray.
From the 21st to the 31st May we will be joining together, in our respective locations, to pray for our world and for God’s love to be shown and known at this challenging time. Join us online, through our youtube and podcast channels and with the materials below as we pray together.
Jesus loves all – a prayer journal
Journey through the eleven days of Thy Kingdom Come using the prayer journal Jesus loves all, written by Methodist Youth President, Thelma Commey.
- Each day there is a passage from the Bible, a short reflection, a prayer, and a suggestion for action. There is also space each day for your own notes.
- Throughout the journal there are images to help you meditate on each daily theme. Let these inspire you as you read through each section for that day; and add your own notes.
- Author, Thelma Commey says, “It is my prayer that as we explore Scripture and reflect on the unconditional love of Jesus, you will experience it for yourself. Jesus loves you”.
