About Thy Kingdom Come
From the very first gatherings of Methodists in Oxford, Methodism has always been suffused with prayer. Prayer is the foundation on which the Methodist Church is built and from which it seeks to fulfil its calling to respond to the gospel of God’s love in Christ and to live out its discipleship in worship and mission.The Revd Canon Gareth J Powell, Secretary of the Methodist Conference
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement in which Christians pray that people would come to know Jesus. It takes place between Ascension and Pentecost (May).
During Thy Kingdom Come:
- People commit to pray daily with God's world-wide family - as a church, individually or as a family.
- Churches, networks and individuals hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, online services, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world.
- People will be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
The invitation is simply for people to pray in whatever way they want, with whoever they want and wherever they can, that others might know Jesus Christ. It's a great way to practice the commitment in A Methodist Way of Life to 'pray daily'.
