The Northumbria Community is an organisation based on a new
version of monasticism. From their version of the traditional monastic
Office we can get prayers for different times of the day, meditations,
scripture readings and prayers for others.
Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension (
21st May) to Pentecost (31st May) for more people to come to know Jesus.
Since its start in May 2016, just three and a half years ago, God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of
possibility into a movement. In 2019 Christians from 172 countries took part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’,
so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:
Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ
Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus
Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in our witness
After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer
while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the
Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.
We are praying that the Spirit will inspire and equip us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends
and families, our communities and networks. It has been amazing how many varied ways there have been in which people
from every tradition have taken up this challenge.
The effects have been remarkable.
“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations
and the transformation of communities."
Archbishop Justin Welby
