Ten days of focused prayer starting 10 May 2018
“They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus” Acts 1 : 14
As we live God’s love, we know how important it is that our lives and the lives of our churches are rooted in prayer. We also recognise that to share God’s love, we need strength, unity and inspiration. We are keen that churches across our diocese join the global wave of prayer that is ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
We were thrilled by the number of churches in our diocese who participated in Thy Kingdom Come 2017; we’ve asked for some feedback and a number of encouraging responses have been received:
“I spent much time praying for people specifically when in our prayer room. I used the idea of writing their names on stones and after praying for each one I placed them in a small bag – which represented to me they were safe in God’s care ..”
“We have had 6 adults coming to faith – 4 of them were baptised in the summer and 6 confirmed in January.”
“A 24 hour Vigil of Prayer was held when people slept overnight in church and services were held throughout the day and night.”
“Perhaps the greatest benefits have been seeing the renewed dedication and awareness of the power of prayer and, in particular, feeling the importance of being part of a world-wide community of Christians praying together for God’s Kingdom.”
Join the global wave of prayer in 2018 – Thy Kingdom Come
