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 87–March 27, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Vancouver Belkin House, Vancouver, B.C.

Praise
We praise God for drawing the chaplaincy team and our staff into a greater understanding of the hurts and needs of our residents. We praise him for the growing desire not only to pray for these needs but to look for ways to creatively speak into those needs through prayer, through providing intentional opportunities for hope, through being a people of compassion and caring.

Petition
With a growing number of people with mental health issues and an increase in residents relapsing, pray for our leadership and chaplaincy team. May God give them wisdom, clarity and vision on how to address the issues our residents face so that they might find healing, transformation and hope for today and the future.

Intercession
Pray for those in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver who are caught in the grip of addictions and homelessness; for seniors and others who may become homeless due to a shortage of sustainable housing; for refugees fleeing to our country who turn to The Salvation Army for assistance; for a heart of understanding and love towards those who come to us with different beliefs and faith but who need us to be an instrument of God’s love and grace.


Shared Scripture


Passage
1 Timothy 6:3-21

Reflect
What does Paul say are some of the dangers of money? Have you experienced any of them? How could you pursue “godliness with contentment” today?
