Sign up your church for week of prayer for evangelisation #ThyKingdomCome
In the week before Pentecost this year (8th-15th May), the Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting every church in England to pray for all Christians to be blessed with new joy and confidence to share their faith.
24-7 prayer can transform your church
In the run-up to Thy Kingdom Come, the week of prayer called for by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, an encouraging number of churches are considering hosting 24-7 prayer rooms, many for the first time.
Some prayer rooms will be held across a rural benefice or deanery, others in larger churches or with sisters and brothers from other denominations and streams. There’ll even be a dedicated prayer room at the heart of Lambeth Palace, the home of the Archbishop of Canterbury.
A round the clock prayer room for a week or weekend can sound a daunting prospect, but one vicar shares the story of when his rural deanery hosted one for the first time, “I was a bit hesitant doing it as an individual church as it’s a lot of hours, but we divided it up and it was amazing. It released all sorts of things in our church and it felt like a spiritual blockage was removed. I shouldn’t be surprised that 24-7 prayer had such an effect, but how it changed our church did surprise me. This year we are doing it as a Deanery and with ecumenical friends. We’ll be using the 24-7 prayer facility [online] which allows people to book slots easily.”
