St Mary's Church Charlbury with Shorthampton

Light up the world with prayer

13th -23rd May 2021

After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ picks up this tradition.

During the 11 days of ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

            Deepen their own relationship with Jesus Christ

Pray for 5 friends or family to come to faith in Jesus

Pray for the empowerment of the Spirit that we would be effective in witness

St Mary’s has several free resources to support this initiative, including a prayer journal, prayer bookmark, prayer leather bands and a Digital Adventure Prayer Map for families.  These are now available in St Marys Church, Charlbury so please do drop in and get some.
