**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: Nahum 2

Bible Study

The Assyrians had ruthlessly raided, robbed and ravaged other nations like a lion kills and tears apart its prey.(vv.11-12) They had no compassion or mercy for other people and now they themselves would be invaded, conquered and killed without mercy(v.10).

God himself stood opposed to Niveveh.  Their brutality, cruelty and inhumane atrocities had been so extreme that the almighty God declared war against them.  This chapter gives a detailed prediction of the attack on Niveveh and its destruction by the Babylonian coalition in 612 B.C. The opportunity for them to repent and turn to God for mercy was past.  They would now receive the judgment they deserved.

We should not be frightened by all those who are against God, because in God's time they will fall just like the Assyrians. Fear no one and nothing but only God! If you know how to fear God and love God then there is nothing you can be afraid of!

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: I am against you!
What I received from Jesus today is a powerful word to remove all our fear. I still remember just a few years ago a priest stood in front of my coach and some other priest said, "Silas, I am against you. I like to see how you as a bishop can do to someone who is against you." I was deeply hurt at that time but that was my first challenge after I became a bishop. I tried all my best to understand him, protect him and care for him.  We become good friends afterward.  And today, Jesus leads me to think of this person and think of what God said the same word to the Assyrians.

Lots of time we act like God! How can someone declares that he is against a servant of God? I just don't understand?! I think this is Satan's main purpose to deceive us so that we see everyone and everything negatively and that we are against so many people.  That's so painful! If you are against, you would not be reading this blog. So, pray for me that those against me will someday find out that I am a faithful and humble servant of God and that we can work together to against the cunning and deceiving work of Satan! 

If not, one day God will say to those people, "I am against you!" And, that will be too late! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be careful not to against your servants. And, lead us to walk with you that we will not be frightened by those who are against you. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
