Thy Kingdom Come // Resources

Thy Kingdom Come, the global call to prayer for the 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost, will inevitably look very different this year, as restrictions on meeting together may still be in place between May 21-31. However, there are many resources that can be used to pray, individually, as households, and as (digitally-linked) communities. As in previous years, the main focus will be on praying for five of our friends to respond to the gospel and become disciples of Jesus.

You can order physical or digital copies of Thy Kingdom Come resources here. There are many different kinds of resources to help adults and children, individuals and congregations to pray. New items for this year include:

  • A digital prayer adventure map, which uses the Thy Kingdom Come app to provide an augmented reality experience (watch Justin Welby trying it here;
  • An 11-day prayer journal, illustrated by best-selling artist Charlie Mackesy;
  • A Thy Kingdom Come app, including prayers, resources and daily Bible readings with theologian Tom Wright;
  • A promotional video, which you can customise with your church’s name and information about its prayer events;
  • and a resource called 'Prayer and Care', which has been developed since the coronavirus outbreak. It will help to highlight the practical work that your church is doing, alongside your prayers for your local community.
