Thursday 21st May is Ascension Day 

and we're called to join in a global prayer initiative called 

"Thy Kingdom come"

Read the letter blow from our ministers

Dear friends,

We are in the post resurrection season when we recall how Jesus appeared to his disciples over a period of forty days teaching them about the kingdom of God.  These were vitally important days, according to the gospel narratives, when he enabled, encouraged, envisioned, and emboldened them, thus laying the foundation for what was to come.

On Thursday, May 21st, we will celebrate Ascension Day when our Lord ascended to the Father in triumph (see Psalm 68:18 and Ephesians 4:8-10), and ten day later He poured out the gift of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost on the Young Church to raise up a global movement to take the whole gospel to the whole world.

We are the inheritors of this global movement that was birthed in prayer (See Acts 1:14).  We have an opportunity to join with others as part of a global prayer movement called Thy Kingdom Come.  This is a movement of people coming together to pray during those nine days from Ascension to Pentecost (May 21st – May 31st) for a mighty outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit across the globe during these traumatic and challenging times when many people are searching for answers to life’s questions.  We want to invite you to identify five (5) individuals to pray for so that they might come to know the love of God for them in Christ.

Please use this link;

This will take you to the Thy Kingdom Come resource page for a pattern of daily prayers to be used throughout the day and a specific pattern of prayer for the five individuals you have identified.

As we pray Thy Kingdom Come may the Lord Jesus pour out His Holy Spirit afresh upon the church, to breathe new life into his people to live the gospel, to share God’s love with our community, and to pray that the Father’s lost children will come home.   

 

Every blessing in Christ Jesus,

 

Peter, Joseph, Troy.

FURTHER RESOURCES:

 A SIMPLE WAY TO PRAY

Take a shoe lace or piece of ribbon, wool or string.
Tie in it 5 knots, one each for the people you would like to give their lives to Christ.
Keep it in a pocket, inside your bible or somewhere else you'll see it every day.
Then, pray for each of those people, every day until Pentecost (and beyond!)


WHAT TO PRAY

PRAYING FOR AN UNSAVED LOVED ONE

If you’re praying for a loved one who is unsaved then here’s a bible promise for you:

“He is patient…not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”

2 Peter 3:9

Remove the word “everyone” and insert the name of your loved one.
Remember that the last miracle Jesus worked was saving a thief who hung on a cross beside him:
“today you shall be with me in paradise.” Luke 23: 43

No matter how far away your loved one may be God’s grace and mercy can still reach them.
So keep praying for them. 
(I met a man recently who prayed for his dad to return to Christ for FORTY years before he did!)
Don’t give up!

Maybe your prayer could be for someone to cross your loved one’s path who will point them in the right direction and journey with them.
Above all, don’t get discouraged, don’t doubt.
Remember that it is GOD’S WILL to save them.
When we pray in accordance with God’s will we can approach Him with confidence.
Know for certain that He hears our prayers
