Marking Pentecost through praying Thy Kingdom Come

Published: 4th May 2022

Thy Kingdom Come logoThe Day of Pentecost, this year on 5 June, marks fifty days since Easter Day and brings the Easter season to an end.

At Pentecost we celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit, remembering how this was given to the disciples after Jesus’ ascension, empowering them to begin the work of making disciples of all nations.

Many Christians use the time from Ascension Day to Pentecost to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. Thy Kingdom Come has become a global prayer movement with Christians from 172 countries taking part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.

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. Who are you praying for to respond to God’s call on their lives?
