Thy Kingdom Come
Between Ascension Day (Thursday 30 May) and Pentecost (Sunday 9 June), Christians of all backgrounds will join in prayer that family members, neighbours and friends will come to faith in Christ. A wide range of resources are available via THIS LINK to inspire and support prayer meetings and initiatives during the eleven days of prayer. A short animated introduction to ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ can be accessed HERE. Church leaders can now create a bespoke ‘Light up (name of your location) in prayer’ video for use in their area using a free, new resource, available via THIS BUTTON.
