Day 100–April 9, 2020 - Salvation Army Canada

Floyd and Tracey Tidd
Dear friends,

On Thursday, April 9, together we complete the journey of 100 Days of Unceasing Prayer and Shared Scripture. Across the territory we have heard the stories of people being inspired by what they are seeing God do in and through The Salvation Army. People have bonded together in prayer as we lifted up the various ministry expressions through daily, focused prayer requests. We have learned much more about the communities in which we serve.

Thank you for sharing this journey. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for listening to God as he has spoken through his Word in the shared Scripture readings from Genesis to Revelation.

We want to also say thank you to those who have already completed the survey and shared with us what God has been impressing upon your hearts and minds through this journey. For those who haven’t had the opportunity yet, we encourage you to take some time during these days of “staying home” to share your thoughts.

As we began the 100 Days journey, none of us could have ever imagined that we would be in the midst of a pandemic at the end of it. We are confident that God knew what lay ahead. This discipline of prayer and shared Scripture has been used by God to prepare us for these days, and the days that will follow. As we spend these days “social distancing,” let’s remain committed to prayer for one another, and for Canada and Bermuda. Let’s remember to continue to spend time in Scripture.

We continue to count it a privilege to be partners in the gospel (Philippians 1:3-5) and together anticipate all that God has in mind to do in and through his Army of salvation.Yours in Christ,

Floyd and Tracey Tidd, Commissioners
Territorial Leaders, Canada and Bermuda


Day 100–April 9, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Grand Bank Corps, Grand Bank, N.L.

Praise
God has done fantastic things in Grand Bank in the past 90 days:

  • Our men’s ministry has gone from being on the verge of closure to 56 regular members, and new people continue to come.
  • Sunday attendance has increased but more importantly we are seeing people beginning to grow in their faith and starting to seek more of God. We’ve had three new converts and several sinners under conviction.
  • We started a Bible study for new Christians and four people are taking senior soldier preparation classes.
  • Two hundred women attended a ladies’ night.
  • 129 volunteers participated in our Christmas kettle ministry in 2019, which resulted in the biggest financial increase we’ve had in the kettle ministry since 2015.
  • Whenever we are out in the community, people are talking about what’s happening in the church. God is good.

Petition
Pray that God continues to work in the lives of our men. Pray for the people who come to our programs and church on Sunday, that they will have the courage to accept Christ. Pray for our youth and for more youth leaders to come on board. There’s an excitement in this corps of what God is about to do, so pray that our people will continue to seek his holiness and righteousness.

Intercession
There are many people dealing with mental health issues. Pray that God will be with them and give the church the wisdom to minister to them. Pray that God will open doors of opportunity within the community for us to minister to his people.


Shared Scripture


Passage
