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 72–March 12, 2020

Filed Under: 100 Days

Unceasing Prayer

Ministry Expression
Thunder Bay Community Church, Thunder Bay, Ont.

We have been living in a season of growth and are about to stretch our wings into two congregations. We are thrilled and humbled by the new people that the Spirit is leading to us for Sunday worship.

We ask for prayer for the congregation to desire to mature in their faith and share their faith (becoming disciples and making disciples). Pray that our congregation will embrace the new people that have been attending to help them feel a part of the family. Pray for God to continue to financially provide for his church here, and that our people will fully trust him with their finances and be generous to those in need.

Thunder Bay has become an immigration pilot city for 2020. Pray that newcomers will experience a successful transition into our city. Pray that our entire church family will be used by the Lord to assist them and provide for them with welcoming hearts through practical assistance and genuine relationships. Pray for the families of newcomers who are still in their home countries, that they can be reunited soon (often one person comes alone, leaving behind their spouse, children, etc.). Pray for wisdom for us to hear and obey God’s will.

Shared Scripture

Acts 3-4
