The global prayer initiative, 'Thy Kingdom Come' was celebrated on its closing day of Pentecost by an evening service shared by people from churches across the Vale of Aylesbury circuit. Roger Watson from Whitchurch, Peter Honeyball from Chinnor and Mel Brown from Aylesbury all gave their own examples of what prayer meant to them.
Writing in our LINK magazine, Circuit Superintendent Rev. Helen Kirk wrote, "I like the idea of prayer not just being something that we say but also something that we do. In prayer we seek to bring God's presence into every aspect of our lives; through prayer we are enabled to see the world with a different perspective and inspired to live in the strength of the One we call 'almighty'... May the prayers of our lips be seen in the action of our lives and the kingdom of heaven be known throughout the earth."
