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 55–February 24, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days


Unceasing Prayer


Ministry Expression
Community Services, Calgary, Alta.

Praise
We see continual growth in families and individuals connecting through programs and supports at the Barbara Mitchell Family Resource Centre, where they find a sense of community and belonging. Many families who were new to the country and first started coming to our Messy Church five years ago have built healthy, lasting relationships with other families.

Petition
Pray for our staff and volunteers who faithfully work to be a transforming influence in the lives of our clients, despite limited resources and the threat of provincial funding cuts. Pray that they may not become discouraged.

Intercession
Pray for the ongoing drug crisis facing many of our shelter residents, that they may be open to hearing the message of salvation and recovery.


Shared Scripture


Passage
Matthew 3:13-4:17

Reflect
What can you learn from this account of Jesus’ temptation that will help you when you are tempted? What temptations affect you the most?
