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 50–February 19, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Fairview Citadel, Halifax, N.S.

Praise
We praise God that clients of our Christmas assistance program and members of our ESL classes connected with our corps over the Christmas season after being invited by members of the congregation. We are grateful to see genuine relationships being formed and developed between our church and the people of our community.

Petition
One of the major areas of challenge for us would be stewardship. There is so much potential; the fields are white for harvest, but labourers and resources are few. Pray that God will stir the hearts of our people to be totally surrendered through the giving of their time, talents and tithes to extend his kingdom in our community.

Intercession
Our corps is located in one of the most highly populated multicultural communities within our city. Pray that God will open doors for us and that we will have the courage to build authentic relationships as we share the love of Jesus with our community. Our greatest desire is to see our God-given mission fulfilled, making disciples of all nations.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Malachi 1-4

Reflect
Some people think the notion of a “judgment day” is outmoded. What do you think? What place does judgment have in the good news?
