**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: Zechariah 13

Please read Zechariah 13 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

This chapter is still on the prophesy of the end time about how God opened his fountain of grace to cleanse the Jewish people from their sin.  This fountain really sprang from Christ's death on the cross, by which he paid the price for all sin. At that time God will expose all false prophets who have attempted to deceive people and keep them from following God.
At that time the shepherd who is Christ will be struck and his disciples would be scattered like sheep. This prophecy may point to the crucifixion of Jesus, or the scattering of the Jewish nation after the destruction by the Romans in A.D. 70, or the end time when pastors and Christians are going to be persecuted and destroyed.
The last two verses probably refer to the tribulation period when God executes his severe end-time judgments on the world.  Two-thirds of the unbelieving Jews will be killed, only one-third will be left. These people are the ones who receive Jesus Christ as their Lord. They will be refined like silver and tested like gold. 

Are you ready for the refining and testing process? What have you done to prepare for that before it is too late?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Refined like silver, tested like gold!
What I received from Jesus today is a word of command like that when I was a scout: 
Fall in!
March! Left, right, left right left! Left, right, left right left!

Yes, this is what I got today. We have to prepare ourselves for this refining and testing process and be willing to join the vast army of God to fight a good fight for God. This will be a most severe spiritual warfare that we alone cannot fight!

I have heard just recently that quite a number of senior pastors and pastors have been heavily attacked and their own people plotted to remove them.
"Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered."(v.7)
So if you are one of those pastors or leaders who are being attacked and you are a faithful disciple of Christ, don't worry, stand firm and call on Jesus. He will has his way to protect you.
If you are those Christians who know that some of your friends church want to do this "cutting the head" plot, give warning to your friends that their action is like killing Jesus!
The time has come that we are going to confront with all kinds of darkness, opposition,accusation, persecution and even killing.

Be prepared and be willing to enter into this refining process!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Open our hearts to understand that we are in a process to be refined as silver and gold. Help us to be able to walk with you each day that we will be under your protection.  In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
