**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: Hosea 3

Please read Hosea 3 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below.

Bible Study

This chapter talks about Gomer was likely in debt and about to be sold as a slave, Hosea came and bought her back at great cost to himself.  Hosea's response illustrates God's redeeming fove for sinners who have no way to redeem, free or save themselves. It is purely God's grace that we can be free from our sinful nature.

At the end of this short chapter also give us a prophetic picture of Israel's exile and their eventual return to their homeland.  During that time, they would have to live without their own leadership and freedom of worship.  But one day they would be rescued from captivity and would return to God and to their homeland.  Eventually, another King would come, the Messiah, and they would accept Him as their Messiah. 

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: From slavery into His grace!

What I received from Jesus today is the way to be free from slavery into His grace. If we admit that we are always so weak and sometimes so sinful as in God's standard, then you'll know how blessed we truly are as God accept us totally in His grace just as Hosea accepted his wife.

Come back to Jesus if you are far away!
Be more and more close to Jesus if you are already following Jesus each day!
Jesus is Lord and He is always gracious, there is no one like Him! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for being so gracious accepting us totally when we are willing to come back to you. Help us to worship you each day as our Lord, Savior and King. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
