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 then prayerfully 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. 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: Psalm 13

Please read Psalm 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.)

Please click the links below to Psalm 13:

But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
I will sing to the Lord,
for he has been good to me. Psalm 13:5-6

What I received from Jesus today is: The remedy for sleepless nights

King David says in this psalm "Give light to my eyes, or I will sleep in death." What I got from David's situation from verse 1 to 4 is a situation of sleepless nights. With the doubt of whether God was there with him using the word "forever". How can God forget David "forever"? Impossible! With his wrestling his thoughts and had sorrows in his heart thinking of how long would his enemy triumph over him. I don't think he could sleep in those kind of mentality!

But, suddenly something changed drastically! We need to learn from this paradigm shift from sleepless nights to a state of security and peace. I see three confirmation from God to David:
1. Trust - We really need to trust in God's unfailing love like children trust in their parents.
2. Saved - Always rejoice in your being saved. Never let Satan to steal your salvation away.
3. Praise - This is what I've got five days ago in Psalm 8 - "The best way to silence Satan and your enemies is Praise". Sing some praise song, click the links of my blogs, play some CDs so that you can praise the Lord and in the midst of praising the Lord. Then, everything will change and you can sleep! And, more than sleep you can see what the Lord wants you to see and have strength, gifts and power to do the things the Lord wants you to do.

Come, Holy Spirit come, fill us so that we can praise God all the days of our lives!
