Three by Three Prayer for Thy Kingdom Come

Three by Three Prayer

These suggestions for nine days of prayer are for use from May 22nd – 30th (the period of ‘Thy Kingdom come’ – the Archbishop of Canterbury’s initiative) possibly at 12 noon, but of course, they can be used at any time.

You may like to light a candle or use another visual focus. 
Be quiet and still for a minute or two before you begin.
Pray for the world/country/community using these suggestions
and then say the Lord’s Prayer…
