‘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. This year that’s the 13th May to the 23rd May.
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 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus
· Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness
“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities."
Archbishop Justin Welby

Prayers for India
What is prayer?
Prayer is spending time in the presence of God; dwelling with God and communing with him. Prayer should help us to develop an intimate relationship with God.
The more we love someone, the more we want to spend time with them, and our relationship with God should be no different.
It is about both talking to God and listening to God.
Prayer develops as we gain a greater knowledge of God. It will require growth in our faith (Hebrews 11:6) for which we are responsible (Jude 20), and a hunger for the Word of God (Romans 10:17).
In India, a second wave of Covid is having a devastating impact. Cases are rising at an alarming rate, with more than 350,000 new cases in just 24 hours, according to Reuters.
More than 200,000 lives have been lost to the pandemic in India. Across the country, hospitals are overrun and oxygen supplies are falling short of demand.
Please stand with us and pray for our sisters and brothers in India.
Pray for strength and courage for our sisters and brothers in India, in the most marginalised communities, to claim the support they are entitled to.
Pray for healthcare workers who risk their lives each day to heal and care for the sick with supplies that are running out, that they receive the medicines and equipment they need to give vital treatment.
Pray for people across the world who rely on precarious work, that they may be sustained and not lose hope in times of scarcity.
(Prayer points from Christian Aid)
We meet regularly together for prayer once a month.
