Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus between Ascension and Pentecost.
After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.
Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ picks up this tradition. Over the years more and more worshipping communities have dedicated the days between Ascension and Pentecost to pray ‘Come Holy Spirit’.
Since its start in May 2016 God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of possibility into a movement. Christians from 172 countries have taken part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
Households, churches and communities are encouraged to pray in their own way and there are resources available on the Thy Kingdom Come website to help and guide them.
The Cheeky Panda resources are back this year. The flagship resource is an 11-part fun-filled and Bible based video series, with songs, animated stories, prayer and interviews with special guests, all based on the daily themes of Thy Kingdom Come. These episodes are designed for use in church services, school assemblies, children’s ministries and at home within the family.
We have created a Thy Kingdome Come group on the Equip Hub which anyone is welcome to join. During the period from Ascension Day to Pentecost, this group will host a daily video to go along-side the Thy Kingdom Come prayer journal. You can use the prayer journal if you would like to follow along, but you don’t need the journal to be able to engage with the videos. Each video with be a short, meditative reflection with time for response. Within this group page there is also a discussion board where you can share with others in the group any reflections you would like to.
