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 70–March 10, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Mississauga Temple Community Church, Mississauga, Ont.

Praise
God continues to speak through new people attending. We celebrate that our multicultural ministers have received the paperwork they need to be allowed to visit their home following a seven-year waiting period. Bibiana’s father died last January and she was unable to return to be with her mother at that time, but we are praising God that they have been there this past month.

Petition
Pray for the challenges we face as members of our corps have moved away from our area to find affordable housing. Also, with the average “regular” attendance being 1.2 times per month (according to Gallop statistics), it becomes very challenging financially. Add to that the “mega” church draw, and we are feeling the challenges.

Intercession
Pray that we are a beacon in the community. Christ is the answer, but how do we communicate that? Mississauga is seeing more violence, so may we be a beacon of peace. May we speak into the lives of our daycare families, those who come to us for help through family services and the people in in our neighbourhood who need Christ.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Acts 1:1-11

Reflect
What “convincing proofs” could you offer someone that Jesus is alive today? Do you believe Jesus will return to earth some day? Why does it matter?
