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 13–January 13, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Lethbridge Community Church, Lethbridge, Alta.

Praise
We host a mid-week children/youth community program beginning with a hot cooked meal, healthy living, biblical teaching and games. This fall we began using the ORANGE material. We are thankful for the creativity in this resource as it has given us new ideas and presented the biblical messages in language and application to help grow these young people in God’s grace.

Petition
Pray for our community and family services as we retool and seek to explore Pathway of Hope. Pray that God opens doors for us to connect people with the gospel, allowing us to integrate people into our Christian community for growth and discipleship.

Intercession
Pray for Lethbridge’s drug crisis as it continues to impact our community, vulnerable people and our downtown business sector.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Genesis 42

Reflect
Joseph was harsh and distant in dealing with his brothers. Is that kind of behaviour ever justified within families? Can that behaviour ever be loving and constructive?
