DAY 1004 - Come Back to Me!

Today's Reading: Isaiah 64

Please read Isaiah 64 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.)

Please click the links below to Isaiah 64:
No one prays to you
or makes the effort to reach out to you
Because you've turned away from us,
left us to stew in our sins.
Isaiah 64: 7(The Message)

Bible Study

Isaiah pleads with God to "tear open" the heavens and come down to them in a powerful and unmistakable way. Verse 1 to 5 is very similar to Jesus Lord's prayer as in "Your Kingdom come" of how Jesus teaches His disciples to pray.

The key to God coming back to His people as shown in this chapter in not only that they recognize that God is the potter and they are the clay. The key is that they do not pray at all and they are so far from God! We reach out to so many things but rarely or never reach out to God! According to statistic, the less Christians attend activity in their own church is weekly prayer meeting, or most churches do not have a weekly prayer meeting. When Christians do not pray, everything change! When Christians pray, everything change too! That change is not the same as this change!

What kind of change do you want? How can you turn back from reaching other things to praying to God?

My Spiritual Journal

What I receive from Jesus is: Come back to me!

What I heard from Jesus is a very short, simple but powerful invitation:
Come back to me!

What Jesus wants is not how we do this and that for Him. He just wants to be with us and that we know how to pray and cherish our opportunity to pray.

Without prayer, nothing happen!
With prayers, everything happen!

Jesus saying this to you now, "Come back to me!"

Dear Lord Jesus,
Teach us to pray and that we really can be as close as we can to you to pray, listen and obey to what you say to us each day. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

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!
