Thy Kingdom Come is the title for a worldwide prayer movement between Ascension and Pentecost. This is a time of expectation and anticipation. As He ascended, Jesus promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses. As those first followers waited for the promise to be fulfilled by constantly devoting themselves to prayer (Acts 1:11), may we too set these days apart to pray.

In the gospels people brought friends, family and children to Jesus and we can do the same. Pray to God for five individuals to encounter Jesus Christ.

On each day, there will be either be a way to pray at church or a simple way of praying at home that will enable you to bring your five friends to Jesus - that each of these lives may be transformed by the One who makes them the object of his relentless, redeeming love.
