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 97–April 6, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Golden West Centennial Lodge, Winnipeg, Man.

Praise
God has continued to be with our staff as we minister to the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents, families and each other. The emotional and spiritual needs have been tremendous, as almost one quarter of our residents have died in the last two months, and we have been grieving them, while welcoming new residents.

Petition
We request prayers of emotional and spiritual support for staff who continue to care for others, even when they themselves are hurting.

Intercession
Pray for the many people in our communities who are facing diagnoses of dementia—their own or their loved ones. Pray that they will have access to care and support as they learn to live with the new reality in their lives.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Revelation 2-3

Reflect
These seven churches are very different and face different challenges. What does Jesus commend in them? What warnings does he give them? What lessons do you see?
