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 29–January 29, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Calgary Agape Hospice, Calgary, Alta.

Praise
It is good to see God's hand at Agape as the various members of our team provide personal care for our residents and their loved ones day by day, provide nutritious food and ensure a safe building. We also see God's love evidenced through the team as they care for each other by offering a kind, uplifting word or hug and offer their support during illness and/or personal losses.

Petition
Pray for the staff as they are constantly challenged these days by the number of residents passing so quickly after being admitted, that they will have the strength to provide the supports that are required by the loved ones and know that the integral role they play in each of these lives is valued and appreciated.

Intercession
We would ask you to remember in prayer the many people who are suffering in and around the Calgary community—those who are homeless, facing serious health issues, loneliness, loss of loved ones, ongoing layoffs/loss of jobs, lack of food/clothing to meet day to day needs.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Judges 13-16

Reflect
Samson's pride got him in big trouble. What dangers could pride pose in your relationships with others, especially with the opposite sex? How can you avoid those dangers?
