The Parish of Gisborne:
May 10th and May 20th
(Ascension Day through to Pentecost)
as we become part of the international wave of prayer.
You can pray individually, with us at Morning and Evening Prayer, or just attend either the Parish Celebrations on Ascension Day; Sunday after Ascension or Pentecost.
St Paul's is open every day for prayer.
More times and dates to come!
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
The hope is that:
"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you will be my witnesses …to the ends of the earth. When he had said this…he was lifted up, and a cloud took him out of their sight…Then they returned to Jerusalem … and were constantly devoting themselves to prayer…
When the day of Pentecost had come they were all together in one place... All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit... and that day about three thousand persons were added." Acts 1,2
“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities."
Archbishop Justin Welby
Pray with us
Between 10th - 20th May, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ.
Prayer events of all shapes and sizes will take place across the 10 days, including 24-7 prayer rooms, prayer days, prayer walks and half nights of prayer. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will host Beacon Events, gathering people across towns and cities to worship and to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for effective witness.
Pray for 5 friends
Praying for Five FriendsPraying for others to know Jesus is one of the most powerful things we can do; persistent prayer for others brings transformation to their lives.Consistently praying for others takes discipline, and there are many ways that we can build up habits that will help us to pray for our friends and family.
Choose five people you would regularly like to pray for and write their names down onto a list. If you’re not sure who to pray for, ask God to guide you as you choose. Once you have settled on 5 names, commit to praying for them regularly.
