A Great Wave of Prayer for Evangelism during Pentecost
Our Archbishop, Justin Welby has invited
us to join in a week of prayer during Pentecost called ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
You may have heard that our Archbishop Justin Welby is inviting all Christians to join in a week of prayer called 'Thy Kingdom Come. 'A Great Wave of Prayer for Evangelism during Pentecost'.
I think we should embrace this invitation in our Benefice and so I have committed myself to pray at the following times:
Sunday 8th May 7.00pm Compline at Thornhill
Monday 9th May 12.00 -12.30 Midday prayer at Thornhill
Tuesday 10th May 12.00 - 12.30 Midday Prayer at Thornhill
Wednesday 11th May 12.00- 12.30 Midday prayer at Whitley
Thursday 12th May 12.00 - 12.30 Midday Prayer at Thornhill
Friday 13th May 12.00 - 12.30 Midday Prayer at Thornhill
If you can join me on any of these dates it
would be good to have your company. Or you may decide to set aside the time
wherever you are and pray at the same time
May God bless you
Well done everyone
