**NEW link for the 11th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign(from August 25 to December 03, 2012).

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 to pray for me, my family and my ministry, 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. This campaign is also to teach you that you need somebody to pray for you daily. I have been prayed for hourly the past 1,100 days and I have never experienced this kind of peace and protection before. It's just beyond words can express. If I did not listen and obey to Jesus call 1,100 days ago to start this prayer movement, I think I would be pulled into darkness and discouragement already! 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: Ezekiel 40

Please read Ezekiel 39 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below.

Bible Study

What do you want if you are very sick lying on the bed thinking that you are not going to have any future or even tomorrow? Encouragement, a hope and future, right?

That's how God did to His people through Ezekiel in today's chapter. It's about a vision of the renewed temple from chapter 40 to 43 that God gave to Ezekiel in 573 B.C., 25 years after he was deported to Babylon. The purpose of that vision was to encourage the people that God would restore to them His glory in the future of the restoring of His new temple.

The vision might be just a symbolic image describing the eternal condition in Revelation 21-22. It might also be a symbolic temple describing the blessings of the millennial kingdom.

Anyway, it was God's special message and encouragement to His people that someday His presence and glory will be restored through the rebuilding of
His temple in Jerusalem.

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Encouragement and future restoration!

If you can have just a little bit of imagination, then you can feel how painful the Jews were when they lost almost everything and being deported to Babylon. No money, no power, no future, without anything! For hundreds of years the temple was the symbol of God's presence and now it was gone. What could they still have if God was gone?

Now you understand why God gave such vision to His people through Ezekiel. Actually it has not happen yet because the millennial kingdom has not come yet. But, the word and prophecy of a possible future gave hope and strength to God's people in the time of total darkness.

So, what does this message has to do with you? At least, you need to know that God will never leave you no matter what happen to you! And, if you remember that, understand that and believe that, you will live every moment encouraged with a hopeful future!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for you abiding love each day. Help us to understand and experience that you are always with us each day that we will never be left alone. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
