**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 6

Bible Study

This chapter is again about a prophesy of the near future of their able to build God's temple and the end time when the Messiah, Jesus Christ reigns.

In his eighth vision, Zechariah saw four war chariots between two bronze mountains.  This vision relates to the first vision (1: 8-11) that the Lord is the one who controls the events of history and will eventually conquer the nations that oppress his people.

The colors of the horses pulling the chariots were red signifying war, black signifying famine and death and speckled signifying pestilence and famine. The chariot pulled by white horses represents the victory of God's agents of judgment.  The four spirits are actually angelic beings.  Both the was chariots and the bronze mountains indicate judgment against God's enemies. The riders and chariots go toward the north and the south which also represent the northern and southern powers during the end times, which God will destroy.

By bringing God's judgment, these angelic beings had satisfied his perfect justice and caused his anger to cease.

Two of the previous visions (fourth and fifth) had involved Joshua's and Zerubbabel's roles as priest and governor.  In vv. 9-15, Zechariah relates the message of those visions to the ultimate king-Priest who is to come, the Messiah.  The Lord commanded Zechariah to make a crown of silver and gold and put it on Joshua, the high priest.  Joshua's coronation points symbolically to the crowning and reign of Jesus, the Messiah, who is also referred to as the "Branch".

Joshua's crowning also signifies as the meaning of the last verse of the confirmation that God had his own way to help them to build God's temple. 

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: We'll get help to build God's temple!!!
What I received from Jesus today is a confirmation to all of us that God has his own way to help us to build His temple if we diligently obey Him as our Lord and God.

This is also a confirmation to me that He is going to prepare help from far away for our people to be able to have our own property in His time if we dilegently obey Him as our Lord and God.

Let's pray for that to happen and in the mean time to be as close as we can be to Jesus, listen and obey to Him as our Lord and King. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for your confirmation today that in you everything is possible.  In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
