**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 6

Please read Hosea 6 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

Hosea gives us today the reason why God's people are being punished and how can we return to God's love and care that we can be fruitful:

Reason of being punished by God:
When God's people become marauders (v.9, even priests, I think including bishops and archbishops in the past 2000 years!), murderers(v. 9) and spiritual prostitutes (v.10, selling our body and souls to Satan and the idols)

How we can return to God's love:
1. Acknowledge God (v. 3) and that for us is to acknowledge Jesus is Lord.
2. Press on to acknowledge him(v.3) and that is to follow Jesus day by day.

When we return back to God follow Jesus Christ as our Lord each day, then the fruit is:
1. God will restore us. (v. 11)
2. Jesus will appear, come to us that we will experience showers of blessing and that we will not be dry, burn out but being watered and grow.(v. 3)
3.  We will experience a harvest. (v. 11)

Is that wonderful! So, what's your decision? How can you help more people to enter into this daily personal intimate relationship with Jesus and to experience the joy of harvest?  

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Stay in darkness or live in light?

What I received from Jesus today is a choice we need to make, sometime we need to make it each day. If we allow ourselves to stay in darkness then someday we will become marauders or even murderers. The sad and painful thing is if we become marauders and murders we might not be able to know. Because in darkness or in Satan's kingdom of darkness we cannot see anything. How can you see anything in total darkness?

That's why in the history of mankind there were so many great leaders of God suddenly turned to the "dark" side like "Darth Vader" in the Star War movie.  But, even Darth Vader turned back to light!

an invitation to have a self-examination whether we have committed that two sins. If we have, then we need to repent and to earnestly seek God.

Dear Lord Jesus,
Open our eyes to see and that we can be able to follow you to taste the sweetness of harvest and the power of your Kingdom.   In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
