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

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Correctional and Justice Services, Toronto, Ont.

Praise
We are grateful for increased daily opportunities to offer the hope and light of Jesus in our programs, residences and the dark secular space of courthouses and prisons, and for the life changes we see.

Petition
Pray for opportunities to shower God’s joy, hope and transforming power on those we serve; discernment and effectiveness in ministry; safeguarding of staff from burnout; faith that God will remove obstacles and expand ministry.

Intercession
Pray that God will heal families affected by gun violence and crime, prevent children from repeating the trauma they witness, and breathe life into those who have lost all hope.


Shared Scripture


Passage
John 11

Reflect
What does it mean to you to know that Jesus has power even over death? How does that knowledge affect the way that you think about your own death?
