Thy Kingdom Come 9-19th May 2024

We are all encouraged to join the Thy Kingdom Come prayer initiative running from Ascension Day to Pentecost Sunday (Thursday 8 May – Sunday 19 May).

It’s a global event, joined by 85 denominations in 180 countries.

Church of Scotland General Assembly Moderator Rt Rev Sally Foster-Fulton states: “Prayer takes us from where we are to where God calls us to be.

“The Lord’s Prayer takes the disciples from where they are to where Jesus needs them to be, the space where, together, they anticipate the coming of the Kingdom.

“That is why we pray ‘thy Kingdom come’.

“That is why we join with the followers of Jesus across the world and pray ‘thy Kingdom come’.

“Together, we anticipate the coming of the Kingdom.

“Together, we seek to live out our response to the words that Jesus taught his disciples: ‘thy Kingdom come’.”
