Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that was started by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. It is ten days of prayer between the Feast of the Ascension (May 21) and Pentecost (May 31) where we join with the global church in praying these two great prayers of the Church: thy kingdom come and come Holy Spirit. We pray in a dedicated way for the witness of the gospel to go forth into our world in this moment of our history and over the course of these ten days, we pray daily for five people to encounter Jesus and the love of God in a real and personal way.
In our participation in this global prayer movement, we’ll be partnering with our sister church, St. Peter’s Chelsea! This is our first joint project with St. Peter’s since we sent a group from All Angels to help replant St. Peter’s last Fall. To help focus us during these ten days, we’ll provide both congregations with a written devotional guide, co-authored by five members from both congregations. In addition, we’ll have online ways to interact with the theme for the day (stay tuned for more details).
Also, mark your calendars for two special services during these ten days.
Ascension Day (Thursday, May 21st ) @ 7 PM
We’ll begin our ten day journey with a joint service live streamed from All Angels Church, co-led by Christine and Nate Lee, and accompanied by Seth Little. This will be a service of Evening Prayer with some special elements to commemorate both Ascension Day and the start of “Thy Kingdom Come.”
Prayers of Lament (Wednesday, May 27th) @ 7 PM
Ascension and Pentecost are both glorious, high holy days in the church. However, the come this year in the midst of a moment of deep grief and pain in our city, nation, and world. Midway through our ten day journey, we’ll reflect on this, through a Zoom prayer service co-led by St. Peter’s Lisha Epperson and All Angels’ Chelsea Horvath.
