Thy Kingdom Come 2023

Thy Kingdom Come (TKC) is a global ecumenical prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.

During this time every person, household and church are encouraged to pray in their own way.

It is the hope and prayer, that those who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and His love for the world, will hear it for themselves and respond and follow Him.

Every Christian across the globe is invited to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of five people. Whether you have joined in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ before or not, you are invited to take part.

The need across the world for the transforming power and mercy of God is more stark than ever. How can we partner with God, in prayer and mission, to see more people encounter the love of Christ this year? 

Changes for 2023

Firstly, daily themes have been created for the resources. These themes focus on the character of God - 'Our Father in Heaven'. 

Secondly, this year a new sub-theme 'Living the Kingdom' has been introduced. Whilst Thy Kingdom Come will always have its focus as a call to prayer for evangelisation, participants are invited to go one step further. Mission always comes from the place of prayer, so how can we in this time go the extra mile to love and serve those we are praying for or others who are in need? This is about living the Kingdom - individually and corporately - in our context. 

Resources for services 

On this page, you will find an array of resources for you to use in your church services. Hard copies of materials can be ordered here.

Thy Kingdom Come have partnered with the Cheeky Pandas to create a variety of free resources that seek to get children excited about Jesus, the Bible and prayer

A great selection of exciting new resources have been made available for young people. 

Commissioning prayers have been produced that are designed to be used ahead of the Thy Kingdom come period. 

This download outlines 23 ideas for churches to get involved with TKC in 2023. Inspired by all that churches have done over the years, you can find some great examples of activities and events that you could consider doing from prayer pilgrimages to crafternoons and prayer postcards.

An updated Novena is now available. This year's Thy Kingdom Come Novena is focused on verses from St John’s First Letter. They express an excitement about the character of God and all He has done.

This year's Prayer Journal has also been created and features contributions from a range of voices across different denominations and traditions. Thy Kingdom Come always focuses on praying for people to know the love of God in Jesus Christ for themselves. However, this year, people are encouraged to consider taking a step further, to go the extra mile, to love and serve the needs of those you are praying for or others who are in need- ‘Living the Kingdom.’ Each day there is a passage from the Bible, a short reflection, a time to pause and pray, and a ‘Living the Kingdom’ action. There is also space each day for your own notes.
