The easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week. What you need to do is very simple. Choose one dayThe easiest way is to take one hour slot for the whole week then prayerfully remembering the ministry of ACiC(ACiC has two Networks: ACiC, Anglican Coalition in Canada and AI, Asian Initiative). You may use the whole hour in prayer or you can still do you work in your office but use as much time as you can to pray and the other time work prayerfully that hour to pray for our ministry. I deeply believe that this is a way to draw as many participation as we can in prayers. I encourage you to participate. We need you to join us! Trust in the power of prayers!

Today's Reading: Isaiah 41

Please read Isaiah 41 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Bible Study

This chapter is like a sandwich in an ABA form.

The first part, the "A" is from verses 1 to 7, and the third part, the last "A" is from verses 25 to 29. These two parts is a prophesy of Isaiah 150 years before it happened. Isaiah saw that god would raise up a man to fulfill His plan and purpose by conquering the nations and protecting Israel. This man was King Cyrus of Persia (559-530 B.C.). He is the one who released the Jews from their Babylonian exile.

The second part, the "B" part is from verses 8 to 24. It's about God's promise to the Jews that God is their help and they should not be afraid. The only way they need to do is to get away from those false gods and return the God almighty.

My Spiritual Journal

What I received from Jesus today is: I can fly!

Today is a very important day in my life because today I made a very important decisions to join with my brother Anglican Mission bishops to be officially under the Anglican Province of Congo as a Mission Society. Our dreams come true today! God's Kingdom will be enhanced!

God gave me a confirmation in 1982 on the day I decided to leave my position as a Music Officer in the Hong Kong Government to prepare myself to go to seminary. That night God gave me Isaiah 41: 8-10.

And today, 15 hours after I made that decision, almost same time at night like in 1982, God uses the same verses to give me a confirmation that I have made a right and Godly decision. Praise the Lord!

"But you, O Israel, my servant,
Jacob, whom I have chosen,
you descendants of Abraham my friend,
I took you from the ends of the earth,
from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, 'You are my servant';
I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Isaiah 41: 8-10

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know that you have chosen us and are with us and that we will never be afraid. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
