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 38–February 7, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Oshawa Temple, Oshawa, Ont.

Praise
Through a church-wide small group campaign featuring John Bevere's The Bait of Satan, more than 120 people learned what it means to let go of offenses and forgive others who have wronged them. The six-session material gave both adults and youth the opportunity for healing and holiness. Following the series, a Sunday morning worship service featured a love feast that gave people an opportunity to pray together and show their love for each other.

Petition
We pray that our leaders – who we characterize as mature, God-seeking Christ-followers – would learn and grow more in hearing from God and being renewed by him. Pray that God will break through and begin a new work in our leaders and this congregation.

Intercession
Our community has been gripped by a cycle of dependency and idolatry. We want to be light and liberation for those still in darkness and bondage. May we learn and fearlessly use the tools put at our disposal by the Holy Spirit to do this.


Shared Scripture


Passage
1 Kings 8:1-9:9

Reflect
The Temple was a special place where God's glory was present. Do you sense God's presence clearly when you go to church? How? What might “cloud” that sense?
