Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is the call of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York for people to pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ from Ascension Day to Pentecost, particularly praying for people to know the love of God – to know Jesus.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global wave of prayer calling all Christians to pray between 13 to 23 May 2021.

As part of this global movement, people and churches of all kinds in Suffolk are praying to see people come to know the love of Christ in our county. We would love you to join in!

It is easy to get involved individually or as part of your wider church community.  You can find simple ideas and resources for prayer to help you do this on the Suffolk in Prayer Facebook group or our webpage here. There will also be prayer events scheduled each evening throughout the week for you to join, hosted by many different denominations. We’ll be releasing details for those nearer the time.  If you can't find what you need please email Nina Seaman or ring 07446 933129.

Our 24/7 prayer marathon is a great way to spend a dedicated and focused amount of time in God’s presence and connect with a large group of Christians across Suffolk doing the same thing.  If you would like to sign up for a time of prayer, with the Lord, we are running an online prayer marathon, 11 days of prayer, 24 hours a day:  Please sign up for your prayer slot by going to the webpage here.
