What is “Thy Kingdom Come” all about? … it’s about Prayer

The idea of praying can seem daunting.  It is chatting and listening to God just as you would with a good friend.   Sometimes we make it far too complicated.  Yet we believe that when we pray with sincerity, there’s no imagining what God can do with our prayers.  There are people who really welcome someone praying for them, even if it’s not something they usually do.

So why 10 days of prayer? In the days between the church’s special days of “Ascension” (commemorating the day when Jesus went up to heaven) and “Pentecost” (when the Holy Spirit came down from heaven onto the Apostles, it’s a day marking the birth of the church’s mission in the world) , it has been the habit of many Christians, for many centuries, to have a focused time of prayers the same as those first believers.

Then the apostles returned to Jerusalem from the hill called the Mount of Olives… When they arrived, they went upstairs to the room where they were staying… They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. Acts 1:12-14
