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 14–January 14, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Kitchener Community Church and Parent Child Resource Centre, Kitchener, Ont.

Praise
We celebrate launching a very successful Messy Church that is providing leadership development for our teens, bridging different ministries of the church building and helping new families find a home at Kitchener Community Church.

Petition
On April 1, 2020, we will integrate the ministries of Kitchener Community Church, community and family services and Parent Child Resource Centre. Pray this integration will go smoothly (on time with renovations) and God’s shalom for our congregation, staff, volunteers and participants will be experienced in this significant change.

Intercession
Waterloo Region is experiencing a high level of child/youth anxiety that is limiting their sense of belonging and purpose, over 20% of our teens do not graduate high school and 33% of young children do not have the skills necessary to find success in kindergarten. Pray that we may be responsive in our programming and care of young families, and that through us these families may encounter the hope of Jesus.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Genesis 43-44

Reflect
Joseph’s brothers had begun to change. What helps family members grow and change beyond past mistakes and sins? Have you been able to do so? What helped you?
