Thy Kingdom Come - Light up Suffolk

It is a privilege for Lightwave to be able to facilitate Thy Kingdom Come as an ecumenical event across Suffolk this year. 

Thy Kingdom Come is a global wave of prayer calling all Christians to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.  This is an opportunity to pray together between May 21 and May 31 2020. 

We believe prayer makes a real difference, and, especially at this time, we’d love to pray with you for God’s blessing on Suffolk. Join us and light a candle, pray together, and light up Suffolk in prayer.

Light a candle in your window

Light a candle in your window every evening, say a prayer and invite friends to do the same. Please visit the Lightwave website for resources and download the colour-in poster here, colour in our poster template, or even better, create your own and put it in your window.  Follow us on Facebook here.

Pray together

Seek out simple acts of prayer for morning, noon and evening every day.  There are lots of resources to help you to light up Suffolk in prayer – traditional and new, written, creative and active for all ages available on the Lightwave website.  These include a Rhythm of Prayer: simple acts of prayer for morning, noon and evening every day, prayers events and more.  

Join our 24 hour 7 day prayer marathon

Many churches across Suffolk from all religions will be coming together to pray.  You can be a part of this prayer marathon by booking a prayer slot here.  Please book as many slots as you would like and for as long as you like. Many people find that praying in the middle of the night can be an extra special time to pray. But choose a time to suit you. You can book to pray as an individual or as a group. Perhaps a few of you would like to commit to pray together - either separately or over Facetime, WhatsApp, Zoom, or even just over the phone.  

The marathon ​finishes with a Pentecost Catching the Fire service held at 4pm from St Edmundsbury Cathedral. 

A leaflet promoting the event is downloadable here.

Please visit the Lightwave website here.

Catching the Fire

Sunday 31 May streamed from St Edmundsbury Cathedral website.  This service led by Bishops Martin and Mike offers a celebration of prayer and will include online pre-recorded events. 







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.
