“This is in partnership with the Church of England and other members of the Anglican Communion worldwide in response to a call from the Archbishop’s of Canterbury and York for a ‘wave of prayer’ to flood the nation on the run up to the day of Pentecost. Called ‘Thy Kingdom come’, it is drawn from Jesus’ model prayer,” a Church spokesperson said.

“The Archbishop says of the Lord’s prayer that it is impossible to overestimate the power of this prayer – re-assuring enough to be on the lips of the dying; dangerous enough to be banned from cinemas; famous enough to be spoken each day by billions of people in thousands of language, yet intimate enough to draw us closer into a relationship with Jesus Christ; simple enough to be memorized by small children and yet profound enough to sustain a whole life-time

“Each parish has been invited to hold special prayer meetings, 24/7 prayer and other similar gatherings. Each person is invited to wear or carry a piece of kite string knotted with 5 knots to represent 5 people they undertake to pray for during the week and beyond. Join them!

“On Sunday 15th May at 4:00 there will be an open united service of Prayer and Praise at the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity in town. Join us!

“But on the Wednesday 11th, feel free to join with Bishop Nick at 8:00 in the morning in Sandy’s parish to pray for 3 things as they walk: that every individual Christian should be renewed in their personal faith so that the love of God infuses their daily lives and work and their own personal relationship with God; secondly that all those that we meet, are close to or work among would see something of Jesus in us that draws them closer towards his love and saving purposes and bring about transformation in their lives; and thirdly, to pray for the church that it may be so full of the life and joy of Christ that it overflows with the reality of Jesus wherever that leads – in service to every part and sector of the community; outpouring with love and compassion to the poor and to those on the margins of our society.

“The aim is to reach the Cathedral for a prayer service at lunch time and to reach St. Peter’s by 6:00 pm for a final service.

Bishop Nick said, “On the first day of Pentecost, that was the experience of those first disciples as God’s Holy Spirit was literally poured out upon them – beginning a peaceful revolution which has completely transformed societies ever since and broken down barriers bringing life and hope to billions.

“It is our prayer that we would see the same happen in Bermuda amidst all of our divisions, mistrust and weakness. May ‘Thy Kingdom come’…”

  1. This is a great challenge / act of bravery that’s being undertaken by the Bishop Nicholas Dill and others from the Anglican Church…They’ll be undertaking a prayer walk across the island, traveling from St. James’ Church in Sandys to St. Peter’s Church in St. George’s with the goal of passing each Anglican Church on the island.” No-matter which “church one attends” the goal is the same…Thanks to all taking part.

    where is this in the Bible?

    • David says:

      1 Thessalonians 5:17
      pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
      And of course the general mode of transportation in the day depended on wealth. As Jesus had no great form of earthly wealth he walked as did His disciples. Even in His triumphal enter He rode on a borrowed donkey.

      • So what did Europeans believe in before they invaded Egypt (which by the way is an Arab name) which by the way is in Africa, as the Greeks started the Christian belief when they created their God Serapis which is why we have the image of Jesus today.
        Dont forget your History and know your Destiny.

        and the part about tying strings ? making knots? what about Jeremiah 14-14–”then the Lord said unto me The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of the heart,”..

      “Render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s,” or in other words, not God’s business.

      Meanwhile, Your Excellence, please take plenty of water with you as there is no need to expire just because you perspire!
