For 11 days across the UK, and in over a hundred countries from
Bangladesh to South Africa, we came together in prayer.
We asked God to pour out His Holy Spirit on His united people
- to empower us share the revolutionary love of Jesus Christ with
our friends, our families, our communities and our nations.
You are a vital part of this movement we call Thy Kingdom Come.
Thank you so much.
I've heard so many wonderful stories - from churches holding
24-7 prayer for the first time, to cathedrals packed with joyful crowds,
to people giving their lives to Jesus after being prayed
for the Thy Kingdom Come community.
And of course, what an incredible blessing it was to hear
Bishop Michael Curry share the good news
of Jesus with a global audience of millions in his Royal wedding sermon
- before joining us for a Thy Kingdom Come event at St Albans
I'm filled with joy at how God is working so powerfully through this
global movement of prayer.
This year, it really started to feel like it was all of us.
Anglicans, Roman Catholics, Methodists, Pentecostals... joining
together in this one clear and joyful cry out to God: send your
Holy Spirit that we might share Christ's love! When we are united
in prayer, it's a clear sign of the Kingdom.
Another sign of the Kingdom is the compassion that is firing up the
Church. That means loving and caring for the poor and struggling
- and for each other.
Jesus calls us to be part of a revolution of love. In our prayers,
we are being drawn into the very heart of that revolution.
I'm more excited by Thy Kingdom Come than anything I can remember
for many, many years.
Praise be to God!
With every blessing,
