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 62–March 2, 2020

Unceasing Prayer

Ministry Expression
Cobourg Community Church, Cobourg, Ont.

We have come through a busy Christmas season having received incredible support from our community. The Mobile Community Outreach Program, which is out twice a week, is greatly needed and has drawn community attention to the growing amount of poverty in our area. The increased attention and interest from the community and municipality is a blessing.

Pray for an increase in volunteer availability to run key community ministries. Pray that our current sermon series, “The Power of Surrender,” will encourage people to rely more on the Holy Spirit, in every area of their lives, and that they would see the difference this makes. Pray for a member of our congregation who has been awaiting a liver transplant for a long time, that a living donor will be found, and for healing. Pray for healing for one of our young people who received extensive damage to his arm in a recent accident which has resulted in having no feeling in his hand.

We ask for wisdom for The Salvation Army, Northumberland County, the towns of Cobourg and Port Hope, and our many community partners, to find lasting long-term solutions to the increasing problem of homelessness and lack of affordable housing in our area.

Shared Scripture

Matthew 14:22-36

What “storms” have you faced recently? How did you cope? How did your faith help you deal with any fear or danger? What have you learned to help in future storms?
