Members Urged to Join Thy Kingdom Come Movement

Wednesday May 29 2019


Members of the Church of Scotland have been invited to take part in the Thy Kingdom Come global prayer initiative, which starts tomorrow (Thursday).

Thy Kingdom Come, which was begun as an Anglican initiative in 2016, aims to unleash ‘a wave of prayer’ between Ascension and Pentecost (this year, May 30 to June 9). It has since been taken up by many other denominations, and this year Pope Francis added his support.

The Church of Scotland formally joined the movement in November last year, when then Moderator of the General Assembly, the Very Rev Susan Brown, signed a joint statement with the Archbishop of Canterbury.

At the time, Mrs Brown said: "This movement is a rallying call to Christians in every branch of the church to remember what we are about – which is looking for God’s will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.

“It is a call to commit to praying for our nation and communities, for individuals and for our churches too and it puts what God wants at the heart of everything.

“What makes it even more wonderful is that as we each pray in our own way, as individuals or in groups, our voices are joined to those of thousands of God’s people throughout the whole of the United Kingdom and beyond.”

There are prayers, resources and a list of events on the Thy Kingdom Come website, and there are apps available for Apple and Android. You can also follow Thy Kingdom Come on Facebook and Twitter.
