Parish Prayer

Join us in a global prayer movement 'Thy Kingdom Come'

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

Generous God,

We open ourselves to the abundance
of your Grace as we accept your divine will for us.

Look mercifully on this church of St. Martin’s.
We want to uphold the values and mirror
the attitudes of your Son,
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We want to speak clearly to the world
of love and compassion,
rather than rules and judgment.
We want to reach out and be relevant
to a changing society.
We want to practise equality and accept all.

We ask for the vision, the courage,
and the way to sustain such a church.
Bless us as we put our complete faith and trust in you.

We humbly offer you our hearts, our minds,
and the fruits of all our labours.

God of Grace; hear our prayer.
