Children & Families – During Social Isolation

THY KINGDOM COME  –  The Family Prayer Adventure

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

The Family Prayer Adventure is a fun and engaging way to help families pray together. There is a daily podcast following a theme of Thy Kingdom Come, and they are about 10-12 minutes long. They feature a game, an interactive Bible story (written and performed by folks like Bob Hartman), a chance to pray and great music. Do share them with families and other mixed-age groups, and use them alongside the Prayer Adventure Map and Journal.
