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 10–January 10, 2020

Unceasing Prayer

Ministry Expression
Edmonton Crossroads Community Church and Canon Ridge Community and Family Services, Edmonton, Alta.

What a blessing the Christmas season is when we are invited into people’s lives to bless them and share with them the gifts from community. We were able to share with over 500 families. We were also able to reach out to all the children, teens and their families that we send to camp in the summer months. Creator is continuing to grow us into his family!

Pray that we will continue to see the deepening of our faith journeys. Creator is at work–healing, restoring and reconciling people in community. Pray that the Spirit would continue to lead and guide us in all our journeys.

We believe that the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob wants to set his people free and we are praying together to see this happen in our community. We ask for you to intercede on our behalf as we go out into our community–through our outreach van ministry, through our community and family services ministry, through our corps ministry–to share the message of love, forgiveness and freedom from all oppression.

Shared Scripture
