Day 81–March 21, 2020 - Salvation Army Canada

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 81–March 21, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Honeychurch Family Life Resource Centre, Brampton, Ont.

Praise
We thank God for providing the opportunity and great privilege of sharing in the stories of his people, leading to the provision of pastoral care and the meeting of practical needs. (God always reveals himself through our generous community/faith groups and partnerships when there is a need).

Petition
For our residents, we request sufficient grace, perseverance and the willingness to follow God’s will in dealing with the daily challenges and obstacles they face. For our staff, unity, compassion and a passion for the mission of The Salvation Army made evident through their daily service.

Intercession
Pray for the landlords and other housing providers to open their hearts and facilities to our clients, to take a chance on them even with bad credit and other barriers, and to give them an opportunity to find a suitable home.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Romans 8

Reflect
What does it mean to be “more than conquerors”? Are you one? With all the suffering around us, can we really say God works all things together for good?
