Thy Kingdom Come is a worldwide prayer movement that invites Christians
around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost. Since its launch by the
Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016, Christians from 172 countries
and 65 denominations have taken part in praying for friends and family to
come to faith in Jesus Christ. The Methodist Church in Britain has been a key
ecumenical partner in Thy Kingdom Come since 2017.
The days between Ascension and Pentecost have always been full of expectation
and anticipation. As the Lord Jesus ascended, he promised the gift of the Holy
Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses. As they waited for the promise
to be fulfilled they devoted themselves constantly to prayer (Acts 1.14). So,
the renewed call across the Church is to set these days apart to pray, and each
individual to pray for five people to come to know the love of Jesus Christ.
Download the prayer journal here, and print your own copy.
Each day there is a passage from the Bible, a short reflection, a prayer, and a
suggestion for action. There is also space each day for your own notes. Did a
phrase jump out at you? Did God bring something to your mind as you prayed
that day? When you tried to take action, how did it go? Make a note so that
you can remember what God has been saying to you through your reading,
your prayers, and your actions.
Throughout the journal there are images to help you meditate on each daily
theme. Let these inspire you as you read through each section for that day;
and add your own notes.
