Thy Kingdom Come is a global initiative, in which Christians are
called to pray for the nine days between Ascension and Pentecost.
We are invited to pray for God’s Spirit to move within the church,
equipping us to share God’s love with others and to pay attention to
how God is speaking to us today.
You can use these daily prayers, readings and reflections at any time
of the year.

Using this book
Choose a time that works for you – each of these
reflections lasts between five and ten minutes, though you
might choose to pause for longer.
Choose a place that works for you – some people can pray
on the bus, whilst walking the dog or in the midst of a busy
day at work. Others need quiet and calm, a special place to
focus; perhaps at home with a candle lit or in a church that
is open for prayer.
Reflect on the image for the day. What do you see in
the image? Does it comfort you or disturb you? Are you
challenged or intrigued?
Reflect on the Bible passage. What is happening in the text?
Who are the people involved, how are they impacted by the
events happening to them and around them? Can you see
God at work in the text?
Wonder at God’s grace and love and wonder how you might
respond in your own life.
Listen for a while and ask God’s Spirit for a word or image,
a gift of insight that leads to greater compassion, deeper
wisdom, a sense of God’s call on your life.
Respond in your own prayers and gather your thoughts
together in the prayer offered for each day.
