**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: Micah 4

Please read Micah 4 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

After Micah's prophesy against the fall of the ruling classes, priests and prophets, this chapter turns to the hope of the glorious future at the end of earthly history that God will rule over the entire world. God will be honored and worshiped not only by  a unified Israel, but also by all the nations of the world. The mountain of the Lord's temple, Jerusalem, will be the center of God's government. This future kingdom will begin when Christ returns to destroy all evil and to establish his reign on earth.

In the middle of this glorious future, Micah changed from future hope to the present doom that awaits Jerusalem.  He tells the people that they will be taken captive to Babylon. This was a prediction 100 years before the Babylonian Empire became the dominant world power. But Micah also foresaw Jews one day returning from Babylon.  

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Come, let us go up!
What I received from Jesus today is an invitation to come and go up. Go up where? Go up to the mountain of the Lord to meet him. It's purely a personal relationship. Why? Let's take a look at the next part of verse 2:
He will teach us his ways,
 so that we may walk in his paths.

We may not have the opportunity for that last day to come.  But, we can go up to the place where Jesus is each day to be a teachable disciple equipping ourselves to be his servants and then walk with him to extend his mighty Kingdom. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be able to come to you, go up to you to enjoy the blessing of being a teachable disciple and to be anointed by you to extend your mighty Kingdom. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
