Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.

What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

  • Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ;
  • Pray for five friends or family to come to faith in Jesus;
  • Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness.

After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Thy Kingdom Come picks up this tradition. Over the years more and more worshipping communities have dedicated the days between Ascension and Pentecost to pray, ‘Come Holy Spirit’.
