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 31–January 31, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Kingston Citadel, Kingston, Ont.

Praise
We are grateful to God for the thousands of families in Kingston reached during our Christmas ministry and for a successful kettle season, even though in the beginning we were concerned. God is good! We also celebrate having enrolled seven new soldiers on a recent Sunday!

Petition
Pray for discernment for our mission board as we move forward and cast a vision for what God's desire for Kingston Citadel might be. Pray that the new vision statement we will create will serve as more than a nice sentiment but will truly be our guidepost. Pray for our newly enrolled soldiers as they start this covenant journey. Pray for our candidates, Josh and Chesney Edwards, as they listen for God's leading. Pray for the establishment of a street ministry and a van to help with the same, that God would provide!

Intercession
Pray that God would help us make meaningful and helpful connections at church and in our community with the many men trying to reintegrate into society following their release from prison. Pray for a continued strengthening of the connection between the various Salvation Army ministry units here in Kingston, that we truly would be "One Army" putting our best foot forward for the Kingdom's sake.


Shared Scripture


Passage
1 Samuel 1-3

Reflect
Have you ever felt that God was speaking directly to you somehow? How could you tell? When you speak to God, how do you know that he really hears you?
