Join Us in Thy Kingdom Come!

10 Days of Praying for ALL
to Know God's Love!
In Keeping with our mission we join Thy Kingdom Come - a worldwide prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension (Thursday, 5/18) to Pentecost (5/28).

Since its launch by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016, Christians from 172 countries and over 100 denominations have taken part in praying for friends and family to come to faith in Jesus Christ. These days have always been full of expectation and anticipation.

As the Lord Jesus ascended, He promised the gift of the Holy Spirit to enable the disciples to be witnesses. As they waited for the promise to be fulfilled they devoted themselves constantly to prayer (Acts 1:14). So, the renewed call across the church is to set these days apart to pray, and each individual to pray for 5 people to come to know the love and peace of Jesus Christ.

Consider taking 5 minutes right now to pray asking God to reveal 5 people who He would have you pray for to know God's love in Jesus Christ for 10 days. Now write their names down and pray for them.
Lord, please reveal your love to _____.
Lord please show me how I might care for____.
Pentecost is the Christian festival celebrating the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus. On this day, we also celebrate God sending the Holy Spirit to us to inspire, guide and empower us as Christians today.

Our Mission recognizes the Holy Spirit is what empowers us to experience & share God's love.
Pick up your free copy at St. Timothy’s in the Narthex or office.

Tuesday Bible Study
You’ll Get Through This
Our next Tuesday Bible Study will be Max Lucado’s “You’ll Get Through This."

We hope you’ll join us beginning Tuesday, June 20 in the Blue Room. We will meet the following six weeks except for July 4.

The study guides are available on Amazon for $8.49. Nancy has Amazon Prime and will be happy to order a study guide for you.

If interested in joining us, please contact Nancy Carter at or text to 979-285-4831. All are welcome!
Following is the publisher’s description of the study:

“You fear you won't make it through. We all do. We fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave. In the pits, surrounded by steep walls and aching reminders, we wonder: Will this gray sky ever brighten? This load ever lighten?

In this six-session small group Bible study, pastor and New York Times best-selling author, Max Lucado offers refreshing assurance. Max reminds participants God doesn't promise that getting through trials will be quick or painless. It wasn't for Joseph—tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned, forgotten and dismissed. But his Old Testament story is in the Bible for this reason: to teach us to trust God to trump evil.

With the compassion of a pastor, the heart of a storyteller, and the joy of one who has seen what God can do, Max explores the story of Joseph and the truth of Genesis 50:20. What Satan intends for evil, God redeems for good.

The six sessions include:
  1. Down and Out, But Never Alone
  2. Stupid Won’t Fix Stupid
  3. Is God Good When Life Isn’t
  4. Now, About Those Family Scandals and Scoundrels
  5. God Can Use This for Good

Who will you pray for during this Thy Kingdom Come?
Who could you pray for to know God’s love during these 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come? Perhaps your friends, families, co-workers, neighbors or another group of people?

Thy Kingdom Come is all about praying for people to come to know the amazing, life-transforming love of Jesus. We encourage everyone to choose 5 people they know, and pray for them throughout the 11 days and beyond!

There are so many ways you can pray for your 5. You can use a band and tie 5 knots, each one representing one of your 5. Or maybe each time you drink a cup of tea or coffee or water, you could remember to pray? Here's a lovely example.
You could write their names on your bathroom mirror, or in this little card or this version with the Lord’s prayer on the reverse, to help remind you to pray throughout the day. Or perhaps you could pray during your daily exercise such as running or walking.
Why not watch this video from The Rt Revd Dr John Sentamu as he encourages us to pray for 5.
Let us know what creative ways you will be using to help you pray for 5!

Healing Prayer – Who are we?
Who are we? We may as well begin with the person I know best. My name is Bernadine (Bunny) Schockmel, and I have been a member of the current Prayer Team for about twenty years. My interest arose when Liz Parker stood at the lectern and told us about the team at her former church. She was going to start one here and invited anyone who was interested to join her. Having had several experiences of my own, including being healed of cancer, I became a member, along with several others. Being a member strengthened my belief in Healing Prayer after several wonderful healings took place. My belief in the power of healing from God through prayer has not waned. We encourage you to join us if you have any interest, whatsoever. God’s Peace and Grace to you.

For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them. 
Matthew 18:20
Those in Need of Self-Compassion or Compassion for Others
Did you know practicing self- compassion has proven health benefits. On her TEDx talk on self-esteem versus self-compassion, Dr. Kristin Neff with University of Texas, shares how self-esteem is based on comparison. However, self-compassion grows not only health for self but care and compassion for others. Research has shown it to reduce stress and the negative health effects of stress, anxiety, blood pressure and more. More information can be found at
or TEDx: The Space Between Self Esteem and Self Compassion.

I highly recommend you listen to the meditations she has from 6-20 minutes long on this site.
