Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Initiative

Recommendation from the Scottish Church Leaders Forum.

Thy Kingdom Come 2020
21st – 31st May (Ascension Day – Pentecost Sunday)

On behalf of the undersigned churches in Scotland, we welcome the opportunity to participate in the Global Prayer Initiative: Thy Kingdom Come 2020:
https://www.thykingdomcome.global/

Now in its fifth year, the movement draws thousands of Christians together, across different denominations and traditions, to pray for their friends, family and neighbours to come to know the love of Jesus.

In the face of the Covid 19 pandemic, Thy Kingdom Come resources have been adapted to enable churches, families and individuals to pray and worship in their homes, through a suite of resources, in line with social distancing guidelines.

For the first time this year, Christians are not only encouraged to pray for others to know the love of Christ, but to also practically demonstrate their love and care through action during the 11 days, an initiative called “Prayer and Care”:

All key resources are available as digital downloads on the Thy Kingdom Come website and offer practical ways in which family and church can be involved:

At this time especially, we commend this initiative to you and invite you to participate and pray: ‘thy Kingdom come’.
