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 51–February 20, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Orillia Citadel, Orillia, Ont.

Praise
We are grateful that the support of our congregation for our first-ever Halloween trunk-or-treat event resulted in us meeting 300 new people from our community. This has helped to launch a monthly youth activity night where 30-40 junior- and senior-high students enjoy fun and fellowship, and more importantly, where the gospel is shared.

Petition
Pray that areas of leadership in our corps recently vacated as people relocated to other parts of Ontario will be filled. Pray that as we assess the needs of our corps, we will follow the Holy Spirit’s leading to the people that God has called us to serve here in Orillia.

Intercession
There has been a 12% increase in the number of families we are serving through our family services. Pray that we will effectively serve our community and reach the hurting and lost with the love of Jesus.
