Thy Kingdom Come





When Jesus was asked by his disciples how they should pray, he responded,

“‘When you pray, say:

Father, hallowed be your name.
            Your kingdom come. 
            Give us each day our daily bread. 
            And forgive us our sins,
            for we ourselves forgive everyone indebted to us.
            And do not bring us to the time of trial.’

Day by day, week after week, generation after generation, we echo this prayer that our Lord Jesus taught his disciples.  It is the heartbeat of our tradition as followers of the Risen Christ.

Since 2016, the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited Christians from around the world to join in praying these profound words, ‘Thy Kingdom Come,’ in an intentional way during the ten days between the Ascension and Pentecost.  We are invited to unite our prayers with those of Christians around the world, beginning on Ascension Day, May 21, and continuing through Pentecost, May 31, that the ways of God's Kingdom may be known, to the ends of this good creation.
