Prayer for the Week

O Thou who camest from above,
Kindle a flame of sacred love
The fire celestial to impart,
On the mean altar of my heart!

There let it for thy glory burn
With inextinguishable blaze,
And trembling to its source return
In humble prayer and fervent praise.

Jesus, confirm my heart’s desire
To work, and speak, and think for thee;
Still let me guard the holy fire,
And still stir up the gift in me.

Ready for all thy perfect will,
My acts of faith and love repeat;
Till death thy endless mercies seal,
And make the sacrifice complete

                                                Charles Wesley (1707-1788)

Thy Kingdom Come is a global movement that invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension Day (May 26th) and Pentecost (5th June) for more people to know Jesus. To assist people participating, two resources booklets have been produced: a prayer manual and a reflection on 1 Peter for that period. Both have been written by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby. Copies of both booklets, for you to take, are available in the foyer today. The booklets can also be downloaded at
