Verse for the Year 2022

Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you." And with that he breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit."

John 20:21-22 (NIV)


Thy Kingdom Come


We are encouraging everyone to engage with a worldwide prayer initiative called THY KINGDOM COME for the 11 days between Ascension and Pentecost (26th May - 5th June). The journey began in 2016 when the Archbishops of Canterbury and York invited the Church of England to pray. Since this prayer movement has grown greatly across the world. Today THY KINGDOM COME is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus. Have a read of the following excerpt from Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby:

“In the days between Ascension and Pentecost, it has been the habit of many Christians, for many centuries, to make the focus of our prayers the same as those first believers. Christ’s last instruction to His disciples on the day of His Ascension is to ‘wait for the gift my Father promised’ (Acts 1:4).

“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)

The instruction to wait for the Holy Spirit is so important because, without the Spirit’s empowering presence, it is impossible to be a faithful witness to Christ. We need this gift of the Father to be the people Christ is calling us to be. The Spirit then isn’t for some private experience, but for the sake of our life for Christ in the world. Thy Kingdom Come encourages each of us to hold five specific people in mind in these days; so that the gift of the Father would work through us for their sake, but also would touch their own lives. I encourage you now to spend a few moments discerning who you might specifically pray for in these days.”

You can find out more and access loads of resources on the THY KINGDOM COME website. There are daily videos, youth & children’s resources, news and lots more.

Here at Beeches Baptist Church we are encouraging you to get involved in the following 2 ways:

  1. Make use of the daily reflections on 1 Peter and the accompanying prayer journal (both written by Justin Welby) to help you pray for 5 people to come to know Jesus. Please contact the church office if you require a printed copy.

  2. Sign up to pray during our day of prayer on Saturday 28th May. We are going to run a virtual prayer room using our Facebook page where we can post prayers and content to encourage one another in our praying. You can book your slot by clicking here where you will be taken to a sign-up page to book your 30min slot. You can either book your own slot or arrange to pray online with others. We are aiming to cover as much of the 24hrs as possible from 8am on Saturday 28th to 8am on Sunday 29th. So don’t delay – book today!

The great thing is that God hears all of our prayers, every single one. No matter where, when or how we pray. So if the above is helpful, please do use it. If not, please just pray anyway in whatever format works best for you. May we be filled with God’s Spirit and be blessed so that we can be a blessing to those around us and see people coming to faith in Jesus Christ. Amen!
