A prayer session with the theme “Thy Kingdom Come” was held at St. Thomas’s Cathedral Parish Centre , McDougall Hall, 3rd Floor on the 23rd March 2018 Friday at 7.30pm.

Organised by the Diocese Kuching and assisted by St. Thomas’s Cathedral Kuching, over a hundred faithful believes from various Anglican Parishes around Kuching turned up to listen to the message  ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, shared by the  speaker, The Right Rev’d Bishop Danald Jute.

It is a time of deeper intimacy and quiet communion with God;  a time of unity with fellow believes in the presence of the Lord, a time to care for others and those around us; and a time to pray for our country, leaders and people.

The session started with an opening prayer led by Rev’d Doyle Owen LaCasse followed by the Praise and Worship team.

Before the Bishop, the Rt. Rev’d Danald Jute spoke on the theme “Thy Kingdom Come”, he began with a prayer for the Holy Spirit to reveal what is the meaning of “Thy Kingdom Come” according to the Gospel of St. Matthew Ch.6 Vs.9-10. In his message, he touched on the history of the Anglican over a century in Sarawak but the people did not enjoy the benefits of the many natural resources they possessed.  So this prayer session held throughout Sarawak  will impact the coming of the Kingdom of God to the life of the people and is very important for a spiritual transformation.
