Light Up: 10 Days of Continuous Prayer for Thy Kingdom Come

From 6am on Thursday 21st May (Ascension Day) until 10am on Sunday 31st May (Pentecost Sunday), the Kairos Connexion Midlands Hub churches are linking up to see if we can cover each one of the 263 hours across these 10 days in continuous non-stop prayer!

How to take part:

Step 1: Sign-Up to Pray

You can sign-up to pray using our online signup page provided by the lovely people at 24/7 Prayer.

You could pray on on your own, with your family or even as a small group or Missional Community if you’re still meeting together online.

All you need is an email address to signup – if you want to, you can create a login with 24/7 Prayer, which makes booking additional slots even easier.

Step 2: Join the Facebook Group

If you’re on Facebook, you can join our ‘Light Up – Kairos Connexion Midlands’ Facebook group.

This where we’ll be posting regular updates, and encouraging everyone taking part to post messages, bible verses, prophetic words, creative prayers or general encouragements throughout the 10 days – a kind of ‘virtual prayer room’.

NEW Pray together!

Throughout the ten days of prayer, we’re taking it in turns to host some shared opportunities to join together for prayer & worship.

Step 3: Get Praying

Now it’s time to start praying!

When it’s your hour to pray, you’ll get an email reminder one hour before your slot. All you need to do is find a space in your house or garden, or you could pray as part of your walk or daily exercise. It’s up to you!

The focus of our prayers during these ten days is to pray ‘Your Kingdom Come, on earth as it is in heaven’.

We’re encouraging everyone to pray for many more people to discover a living faith in Jesus Christ and the power of the gospel to heal, save & rescue.

Here’s a video of the Archbishop of Canterbury talking about his commitment to pray for people to come to know Jesus during Thy Kingdom Come in 2018.

When you’ve finished praying, why not post something on the Facebook group to encourage the next person praying after you?

What’s the big idea behind Light Up?

David Hammond, Vicar of St John’s Westwood & Kairos Connexion Midlands Hub Leader explains the idea behind Light Up: 10 Days of Prayer.
