Thy Kingdom Come (TKC) is a global ecumenical prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.
Since it began in May 2016, God has grown TKC from a dream of possibility into a movement which unites more than a million Christians in prayer, in nearly 90% of countries worldwide, across 85 different denominations and traditions – so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
Every person, household and church are encouraged to pray during the 11 days (18th to 28th May) in their own way, ‘Lighting Up the World’ in Prayer.
It is our hope & prayer, that those who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and His love for the world, will hear it for themselves and respond and follow Him.
Specifically, we again invite each and every Christian across the globe to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 people who have not responded with their ‘Yes’ to God’s call.
Whether you have joined in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ before or not, we invite you to take part & join in.
“In praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities.” Archbishop Justin Welby
A worldwide wave of prayer
Thy Kingdom Come, is a worldwide wave of prayer, rooted in the practice and experience of the earliest church as they obeyed Jesus΄ command to wait for the outpouring of the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The Thy Kingdom Come Novena for 2023 is focused on verses from St John’s First Letter. They express an excitement about the character of God and all He has done. The focus is on God’s dynamic action in creation and salvation. Here is a story of love, hope, challenge, and peace. Here is God’s powerful invitation to share His life and love: not only here and now but for all eternity.
Thy Kingdom Come is our annual invitation and encouragement to Christians and Churches, not only in England but across the world, to seek the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that we might live out and share the Kingdom of God.
This presence of the Spirit is what transforms a human institution into the Body of Christ. At the heart of Thy Kingdom Come is our focus to ‘Pray for five’. It is an invitation to bring five people before God – friends, family, neighbours or colleagues who are not yet following the Lord Jesus. It is an encouragement to pray that the Holy Spirit will open their hearts and minds to God’s love, forgiveness, and peace.
Take time today to pray for five people you know and love to know God’s love for
them. As you pray for them remember we are the pictures of Christ in the world;
icons of His love in the way we care for creation and minister to the needs of those
