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 98–April 7, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Etobicoke Temple, Etobicoke, Ont.

Praise
We thank God for an intense and invigorating Christmas season: kettle campaign collaboration with three other corps, the community and family services toy depot, and the commitment of volunteers (CCM, CFS, finance, drivers, bell-ringers and our band). Our Lord continues to give us many mission opportunities and encourages us with fruit for the faithfulness of his people.

Petition
Several of our faithful soldiers and adherents are struggling with health issues. Waiting for immigration papers is a daily stress for several corps families. Pray for continued spiritual strength of our God-glorifying disciples and the spiritual growth of our young people.

Intercession
Pray for our neighbourhood’s redemption through salvation and transformation by sanctification. Pray for wisdom, discernment and passion as we navigate the continually increasing cultural diversity and spiritual hunger of Etobicoke North. Pray for our ability to impact youth in our community with the gospel.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Revelation 4-7

Reflect
What picture of heaven do you get from these chapters? How does it make you feel? Who is the focus of the worship taking place there?
