Floyd and Tracey Tidd
Dear friends,


We greet you in the name of the Lord and continue to count it a privilege to be “partners in the gospel” with you (see Philippians 1:3-5).

With the conclusion of 100 Days of Unceasing Prayer and Shared Scripture quickly approaching, we want to extend a word of appreciation for your commitment to this journey. In our travels across the territory, many have shared their experiences with us, and we have been encouraged by them. More than a thousand people have been sharing in the praises, petitions and intercessory prayers of 100 ministry units from across Canada and Bermuda. Together we have taken them to the throne of grace in prayer and listened carefully for God’s voice as we have read his Word.

As we continue this journey of prayer and shared Scripture, we invite you to communicate your thoughts and reflections on what you have learned so far by answering three questions. Your feedback will be invaluable as we discern together what God has in store for our territory. We believe he will do “immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Ephesians 3:20).

Thank you for prayerfully considering your responses as you reflect on what you have read, heard and prayed about in these days.

May God bless you. May God bless his Army. May God bless Canada and Bermuda and bring blessing to the nations through The Salvation Army. 

Yours in Christ,

Floyd and Tracey Tidd, Commissioners
Territorial Leaders, Canada and Bermuda


Day 75–March 15, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
New Directions, Correctional and Justice Services, Kitchener, Ont.

Praise
In every interaction with members of the community and our clients, our staff, who support our mission, are agents of God’s grace. In a recent survey, many clients leaving our residential program stated that the way they were treated had a direct impact on their adjustment to the community and helped them complete the program. One client thanked staff for all the supportive conversations and practical help he had received. He said that the way he was treated helped him gain the confidence he needed to make a change in his life. He now has a job and has saved for a place of his own. Even though he knows he made a terrible mistake, he can see hope for a future and can leave the past behind him. When we treat clients with dignity, they begin to see themselves as productive members of the community.

Petition
Pray for the protection of New Directions, its staff and partners in correctional services who support The Salvation Army in this work.

Intercession
Pray on behalf of our downtown community, where the needs for housing and addiction support are great. May we at New Directions continue to seek opportunities to work with our neighbours, to be bearers of hope and agents of change.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Acts 10:1-11:18

Reflect
Peter had to overcome prejudice in order to welcome Cornelius. Are there prejudices (perhaps unintentional) that exclude people from your church fellowship?
