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 68–March 8, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Grand Falls Citadel, Grand Falls-Windsor, N.L.

Praise
We are celebrating a moving of the Holy Spirit in our church as people have committed and recommitted their lives to God.

Petition
Pray that our congregation will advance in evangelism efforts, grow even deeper in discipleship, and develop further integration with our community and family services.

Intercession
There has been a rise of crime in our community, quite possibly related to drug use. Pray that those who are addicted and those involved in the illicit drug trade will see the light of Christ, find the practical resources they need to break free, and experience life-transformation! And, Lord, may we be given opportunities to play a part in that through our ministry.


Shared Scripture


Passage
John 19

Reflect
In light of what Jesus did on the cross, why do you think so many people still ignore him? Why should anyone care that Jesus died?
