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. Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit.
'Thy Kingdom Come' picks up this tradition.
Over the years more and more worshipping communities have dedicated the days between Ascension and Pentecost to pray 'Come Holy Spirit'.
We are praying that the Spirit will inspire and equip us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends and famili
Thy Kingdom Come prayer:
Almighty God, your ascended Son has sent us into the world to preach the Good News of your kingdom; aspire us with your Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of your Love, that all who hear your Word maybe drawn to you, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
We have decided to continue using this prayer and encourage all members of our community of faith to pray this prayer daily.
God bless you all, Dean Phillip
