Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.  What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England (and in which we here at St Nicholas joined in) has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer. 

Starting this Thursday I am encouraging you to consider praying for 5 people as part of the “Thy Kingdom come’ initiative I talked about last week for 11 days.  Karen has put together a number of simple resources which you will find on the table in front of our sound desk to help you in this. Please look at these, take a prayer card, prayer sticks, stones or threads.  We are going to have the church building open on June 3rd Saturday 10 am to 4 pm for prayer using prayer stations based on the Lord ’s Prayer as an option for you.  Our women’s group meeting on Wednesday evening are also going to take time to pray together. I have offered resources to our small group leaders available as an option for your group meetings next week.

From  the ‘thy Kingdom come website’ : During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring others to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer. 

The under-girding of everything we are doing here and in the Minster is prayer. Come and join in!
