Thy Kingdom Come: Episcopal Church joins Worldwide Anglican Communion campaign calling for prayer
The Episcopal Church has joined the Worldwide Anglican Communion in Thy Kingdom Come, a campaign initiated by Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby calling for prayer by individuals, congregations and families.
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension Day – May 25 – and Pentecost – June 4 – for more people to come to know Jesus. #ThyKingdomCome
