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

Unceasing Prayer

Ministry Expression
Cariboo Hill Temple, Burnaby, B.C.

Our church is learning to lean into the Spirit’s power for ministry by discovering how he gifts the body to work in unity for mission. This was displayed at our Christmas community dinner where administrators, evangelists, people with gifts of service and helps, etc., intentionally collaborated to serve the community.

Pray that our hearts would be shifted from self-preservation to self-emptying (like Jesus). Pray that we would see Jesus as more beautiful than anything we think is precious. Pray that our priorities, time, finances and hearts would reflect Christ more closely.

The community’s apathy towards Jesus and the church—even offence over what they think we represent—keeps many from considering Christ. Pray that they would have “eyes to see” and “ears to hear.” Pray for revival in Vancouver and its surrounding areas that will include God’s miraculous healing of those bound by opiate addiction.

Shared Scripture

Isaiah 51-53

There is both “bad news” and “good news” in this passage. What is the bad news and the reason for it? What foreshadowing of “good news” do you see?
