Join Thy Kingdom Come prayer wave
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to faith in Jesus Christ. It has been supported by the Church in Wales since it began, seven years ago.
This year, between Ascension Day and Pentecost (May 26th – June 5th), Christians from over 172 countries will be praying specifically for three things:
- That their own faith might be strengthened and deepened.
- That the five people they commit to praying for daily will come to faith.
- That the Holy Spirit will empower all of us to be more effective in our witness.
The Bishop of Monmouth, Cherry Vann, is encouraging people to take part. She says, "To pray the words ‘thy Kingdom come’ is to express a desire and a hope for the world to be a better place: a world where lives, relationships and communities are based on the love, justice, freedom and peace that we find through faith in Jesus.
"I encourage you to use these 11 days to pray for a renewing of your faith, for an empowering of the Holy Spirit and for five people you know to come to faith in Jesus Christ."
The Thy Kingdom Come website is full of resources to support prayers, including a Novena (also available in Welsh) and a Prayer Journal, both written by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
