**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: Zephaniah 2

Please read Zephaniah 2 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.

Bible Study

Zephaniah had declared with absolute certainty that the day of God's wrath was coming upon Judah and this day would not be canceled.  The time of judgment had been set, and the nation had to be punished for its rebellion and unfaithfulness toward God.  

God offers hope to those who had already turned to the Lord for mercy and help.  According to verse 3, they had to pursue three things in order to live:
1. A right relationship with God himself.
2. A life of righteousness - living their life according to God's standard.
3. Being humble - pride leads to self destruction, being humble is the indicator whether God is our real God or we take God's place to be god. 

So, when that day come, do you think you have these three things to live and not be destroyed?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Three things to live!
What I received from Jesus today is a warning as well as an invitation to live out these things things in our daily life. The first point is the one I say it thousands of times: a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus.

The second point is also the key I say it thousands of times: a lifestyle of Christlikeness. 

The third point is the fruit of whether we can live out point 1 and 2.

Do you agree? How can you make some improvement to live out these three points in a better way?  

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to live out these three things in order to live. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
