Premier’s Novena is an opportunity to pray with others for the nine days between Ascension Day and Pentecost. These 9 days of prayer mirror the first followers of Christ who obeyed Jesus who told them to pray and wait for his Holy Spirit to empower them.
They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers. (Acts 1:14).
Together with Thy Kingdom Come, a worldwide initiative of the Church of England supported by national church leaders from across denominations, we want all Christians to unite in prayer and have created our Novena to enable you to do so easily and conveniently. We hope and pray we will see a fresh outpouring of Holy Spirit power enabling us to share our faith so that the family of God grows in our land.
