Thy Kingdom Come across the nation
I like Justin Welby. I like that he cares. I like that he is compassionate. I like that he loves Jesus. I like that he prays. And wants us to pray - for our nation. He has launched Thy Kingdom Come - a national prayer initiative. The name comes from a line in The Lords Prayer...Thy Kingdom Come... So for 10 days from Ascension Day to Pentecost (I wasn't sure what that meant either!) the archbishop of Canterbury is calling us to pray for our nation. I am not an Anglican but I think that is a good thing. My local Anglican church, St Nics Newbury, is having a prayer gathering each day from 10th May 7.30am 12.30pm and 7.30pm. I might join them.
