His Kingdom Come: 10 days of prayer 

For the past few years the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have encouraged ten days of concentrated prayer from Ascension Day to Pentecost (May 21 -31). A local Christian group encourages you to join in.
 


 
Many are already praying specifically for our nation and communities during the 40 days preceding Pentecost, using Call to Prayer booklets.  In addition, local group Call to Prayer can offer a prayer guide based on The Lord’s Prayer which they encourage people to use for the final ten days.
 
Director Jill Gower said, "How we all long to see His Kingdom come, and the sense of urgency is greater than ever before as we navigate our way through the current crisis, fixing our eyes on Jesus and crying out to Him for a great outpouring of His Holy Spirit on the Feast of Pentecost 2020."
 
His Kingdom ComeCompiled by Jill and entitled His Kingdom Come, the booklet includes notes on each part of what is also sometimes known as The Disciples’ Prayer. It also includes the Hebraic prayer from which much of it originates, and is based on Thanksgiving, Proclamation, Declaration, Prayer and Blessing.
 
His Kingdom Come is available for £3 + postage from Call to Prayer's online shop – just click on:  http://www.call2prayer.co.uk/paypaljs.html  
 
Jill said, "If you already have a copy why not buy another to give to someone you know who may be new to prayer?!  According to The Guardian on Sunday May 3 'British public turn to prayer as one in four tune in to religious services'.  This is so encouraging isn't it!"
