Thy Kingdom Come 2018

Come Holy Spirit

Almighty God,
your ascended Son has sent us into the world
to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit and fill our hearts with the fire of your love,
that all who hear your Word may be drawn to you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord

 

Thy Kingdom Come Prayer from Land’s End
written by Rev’d Canon Vanda Perrett, 10th May 2018

From land to shore, from coast to coast, let Thy Kingdom Come
From the surging surf to the quiet earth, let Thy Kingdom Come
From the deepest mines to the stars above, let Thy Kingdom Come
From Land’s End to Launceston, Tintagel to the Lizard, let Thy Kingdom Come
From Foy to Padstow, Callington to Mousehole, let Thy Kingdom Come

At Heligan and Eden Project, Healey’s to Flambards, let Thy Kingdom Come
At the Minack and the Hall for Cornwall, The Merry Maidens to Lanyon Quoit, let Thy Kingdom Come
At Boscastle and Boscarne-Un, St Ives to Mevagissy, let Thy Kingdom Come
At The Royal Cornwall Show and the Poole Car Boot, let Thy Kingdom Come
At Truro Cathedral and in every church whatever denomination, let Thy Kingdom Come

In the Poldark fans and the Dawn French fans, let Thy Kingdom Come
In the visitors, the locals, the tourists and the pilgrims, let Thy Kingdom Come
In the old, the young and those in between, let Thy Kingdom Come
In the pasty eaters and cider drinkers, let Thy Kingdom Come
In the cream tea scoffers, jam on first "of coursers", let Thy Kingdom Come

And Dear Lord, as we pray for Cornwall, for the UK, for the whole world
In the good, the bad, the sinners and the saints, in the loud and the quiet,
In friend, in stranger, in lovers and betrayers, in the joy filled and the moaners,
In morning people and night owls, in the sick and the grieving,
In the teachers and the learners, in the crafters and the cooks,
In Ministers and Bishops, in family and in me, in all,
Lord of this world and the next,
Let Thy Kingdom Come!
