In Church yesterday we were reminded that Thy Kingdom Come will begin on Thursday – a 10 day global prayer movement.
Roland mentioned Novena – a way to pray over nine days – you can read more about that on the Thy Kingdom Come resources page as well as download the Prayer Journal
You can also find many Church of England Resources – including Apps for your phone
We are encouraging everyone to Pray for 5
HOW TO PRAY FOR YOUR 5 DURING THY KINGDOM COME
Thy Kingdom Come encourages every Christian to pray for 5 individuals so that they would know
God’s love for them in Christ.
ASCENSION DAY – Jesus
Pray for your 5 friends to encounter Jesus in all his grace, challenge and love, that they might say
with St Paul, ‘For me, to live is Christ’.
FRIDAY AFTER ASCENSION – Praise
Pray for your 5 to be woken up to all that they have already
received from God in their lives, and all that he oﬀers them in Christ, that they might praise him.
SATURDAY AFTER ASCENSION – Thanks
Pray for your 5 to recognise the goodness of God in their lives, that they would turn to God in
gratitude and trust.
SUNDAY AFTER ASCENSION – Sorry
Pray for your 5 to be led by the Holy Spirit to understand the
cost of God’s love for them in Christ, that this great sacriﬁce would lead them to repentance.
MONDAY – Oﬀer
Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring an understanding of life in all its fullness that will be theirs as your
5 put everything they have at the disposal of God.
TUESDAY – Pray for
Pray for the Holy Spirit to work in the lives of your 5 now, as you pray for speciﬁc things that you
know they face.
WEDNESDAY – Help
Pray for your 5 that they would know that they never have to face anything alone, but that in their
need they would call on God for help.
THURSDAY – Adore
For the eyes of your 5 to be opened to all that Jesus oﬀers them and that they would turn their
faces to him and enjoy the warmth of his love.
FRIDAY – Celebrate
Pray for yourself and those others the Lord sends to help show your 5 their route home to God,
that they would know the loving father running to greet them.
SATURDAY – Silence
Pray for the Holy Spirit to put on your heart the desires of heaven for your 5.
THE DAY OF PENTECOST – Thy Kingdom Come
Pray ‘Come Holy Spirit’ for your 5 friends, that they may joyfully enter the Kingdom of God and ﬁnd themselves used by God to
pray and act ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
