Thy Kingdom Come (1)

A great wave of prayer for evangelism across our land for Pentecost – that is what the Archbishops of the C of E are encouraging all churches and Christians to take part in between 8 and 15 May. In their letter to all C of E churches the Archbishops said:

“At the heart of our prayers will be words that Jesus himself taught us – ‘Thy kingdom come, thy will be done.’ It is impossible to overstate the life-transforming power of the Lord’s Prayer. It is a prayer that is reassuring enough to be on the lips of the dying and yet dangerous enough to be banned in cinemas. It is famous enough to be spoken each day by billions in hundreds of languages and yet intimate enough to draw us ever closer into friendship with Jesus Christ. It is simple enough to be memorised by small children and yet profound enough to sustain a whole lifetime of prayer. When we pray it with sincerity and with joy, there is no imagining the new ways in which God can use us to his glory.”

There are a variety of suggestions on how to participate in the prayer week  on this website.
What to pray? The  inspirational Novena Prayer booklet with Pocket Prayers is  available for free download and also contains the accompanying Bible reading for each day.
St Mary’s will be taking part on line and we will print a daily prayer in a new post each day until next Sunday.
