Let thy kingdom come

May 18th, 2017 by Jo Johnson

Many of us enjoy the dynamic of being part of something bigger. We love being part of a crowd of supporters at a sporting event or taking part in a sponsored event to raise money for charity. Knowing that we are part of an extensive movement can give us a sense of connectivity and significance.

Something else that empowers us is knowing that God has chosen to work through his people. When we join in with his mission through prayer, God is glorified and we can watch expectantly to see him move in power to do immeasurably more than we ever ask for or imagine!

Because we think being part of a global movement is great and because we know that prayer is a critical part of partnering with God in his mission, we are very excited by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s initiative that is running this year between ascension and Pentecost (25 May to 4 June). Called Thy Kingdom Come, it’s a global call to pray, alone or with others, for our communities and other communities for which we have concern and love, to come to know Jesus.

One way you can pray is to ask God for newly translated Scriptures to impact the people they’ve been translated for, whether whole New Testaments or just portions of Scripture. Since January we’ve told you about the Baka in Southern Sudan, the Beliyan people in Senegal, Kamuku of Nigeria, 11 languages in Papua New Guinea, and the Karon people of Senegal, but there are many others too.

Wherever you are in the world, and whatever church you’re part of – join with Thy Kingdom Come and be part of this global wave of prayer.
