Dear friends,


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

Cathedral.

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,

Here's a wonderful video showing some of what has happened

in this year's Thy Kingdom Come...

Dear friends,


It has been an absolute joy to join the global wave of prayer through 

Thy Kingdom Come initiative.

The Holy Spirit rekindled the fire of his love in the people I met and

worshipped with.

Empowering, equipping and commissioning the followers of Jesus Christ

to pray for others to know His love. 

Often it was the chance encounters with people I met where I saw

lives transformed, as they encountered the Risen Christ and knew the

power of the Holy Spirit descend on them.

Three people out of the five that I put on my prayer list at last year's

Beacon Event came to York Minster and gave their lives to Christ.

What an encouragement!

I am still praying for the other two and the five I started praying for on

Ascension Day.

Our God is awesome!

With every blessing,
