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 66

Please read Psalm 66 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.)

獻給我天上的主 Offer to our Heavenly Father

Please click the links below to Psalm 66:

For you, O God, tested us; you refined us like silver.
You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs.
You let men ride over our heads; we went through fire and water.
but you brought us to a place of abundance.

I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you.
Psalm 66: 10-13

What I received from Jesus today is: Tested, Blessed, Offered!

That's how David and all the servants of God have been experiencing. We are and will be tested severely. If we pass those tests then we will be blessed abundantly. Then, the final result and fruit will happen. Do you know what will that be? We will change from someone who want to "get" to someone who want to "give". Before that you may just give $20 a week to your church and you consider that a lot of money even though you might spend $30 for your lunch, $50 for your dinner and $200 or more for your weekly purchasing. After how you experienced the tests and His blessings you may be able to offer 10 times or 20 times than what you used to give and you would still think that is you honor to honor God.

I do hope you are being tested, passed, blessed and begin to be a "big" giver for His Kingdom ministries!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to change from a big spender to a big giver to honor your Holy Name and to further your Kingdom ministries.
Jesus name we pray. Amen.
