Thy Kingdom Come – 24-31 May
In 2020 St Mary’s are holding a week of non-stop prayer as part of Thy Kingdom Come in the week leading up to Pentecost. This is the fourth year we have taken part as a church, praying night and day for God’s Kingdom to come in our families, church, community and the world.
This year will be a bit different as we cannot operate the Prayer Room at church it will be a Virtual Prayer. People can book slots online and commit to pray for that hour at home. There are lots of resources to help you and your family pray here.
We will start praying with the first slot at 9pm on Sunday 24th May and will finish at 9am on Sunday 31st May.
The idea might seem a bit daunting at first to pray for a whole hour, but there are lots of great resources we will be drawing on from the 24-7 Prayer movement and many people say once they start they can’t stop! (Read more here)
This is a great opportunity to come together as a church at this time to seek God, to pray for our church, community, friends, family and to spend time experiencing the presence of God.
24-7 Prayer is a global movement started in 1999, following a long tradition of Christian prayer, and has led to continual prayer 24 hours a day in a chain of Prayer Rooms around the world ever since. You can read more about 24-7 Prayer on their website www.24-7prayer.com.
