Dear Brothers and sisters,
I offer for your daily prayers and reflections over the next 11 days from Ascension Day to Pentecost Sunday the booklet prepared by Thy Kingdom Come. These 11 days are being taken up across the world by Christians, praying for friends and family to come to faith.

From the introductory page:

Thy Kingdom Come is a worldwide prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost. Since its launch by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016, Christians from 172 countries and 65 denominations have taken part in praying for friends and family to come to faith in Jesus Christ.


These days have always been full of expectation and anticipation. As the Lord Jesus ascended, He promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses. As they waited for the promise to be fulfilled they devoted themselves constantly to prayer (Acts 1:14). So, the renewed call across the church is to set these days apart to pray, and each individual to pray for 5 people to come to know the love and peace of Jesus Christ.

Each day there is a passage from the Bible, a short refection, a prayer, and a suggestion for action. Keep a notebook – this would be a good thing to have for all your daily prayer and Bible reading. Did a phrase jump out at you? Did God bring something to your mind as you prayed that day? When you tried to take action, how did it go? Make a note so that you can remember what God has been saying to you through your reading, your prayers, and your actions.

Throughout the journal there are images to help you meditate on each daily theme and inspire you as you read through the passages and make your own notes. We are delighted to include on the cover Charlie Mackesy’s illustration of the Prodigal Son, an image that so clearly depicts the Father’s love for us.

Would you put the names of five people into your notebook and pray for them throughout Thy Kingdom Come?

Because the text in the booklet is not always easy to read in PDF form due to poor contrasts with the background, I have placed a plain copy of each day's words in the margin.
With Blessings,
Paul
