Day 87–March 27, 2020 - Salvation Army Canada
100 Days Survey Banner
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 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?
