Dear *|FIRSTNAME|*,

Yesterday the global church celebrated the Ascension of Christ, and in this part of the world many of us enjoyed the day off! Just to remind you that during these nine days in between Ascension and Pentecost, there is a global movement of prayer entitled “Thy Kingdom Come” taking place.

Whatever else you pray each day, I encourage us all to take time praying The Lord’s Prayer, maybe slowing it down and focussing on a different line one day at a time.

Archbishop Justin Welby writes, “In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities."

Click here to listen to the new “Thy Kingdom Come” song for this year.

Here is the Collect for Thy Kingdom Come:

Almighty God,
your ascended Son has sent us into the world
to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit
and fill our hearts with the fire of your love,
that all who hear your Word
may be drawn to you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

She hopes that in due course many of us will feel inspired to share our own ideas. Click here to read the first blog post.
