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 92

Please read Psalm 92 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 92:

It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,
to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,
to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.
Psalm 92: 1-3

What I received from Jesus today is: The power of making music to praise the Lord!

Do you understand the power of making music to praise the Lord?
Have you experienced the power of making music to praise the Lord?
Do you enjoy making music each day to make music to praise the Lord?

Lots of people asked me for years why as busy as I have been but still spend time to rehearse with the Schola Cantorum and to make at least one concert a year. Do you want to know the reasons? Here is the answer:
1. An invitation: It was a direct invitation from the Lord in 1997 asking me to use my gift of music to promote good classical choral music in Greater Vancouver.
2. A way of training: It is a good way of training to those church choir conductors and members who are Schola members to acquire better skills as conductors and choir members.
3. A rest for me: Every time after two hours of rehearsal I always like a deep massage in my brain and my spirit is being uplifted by the power of making music to praise the Lord. Actually quite a number of times I was in the condition as in verses 6 to 11 of being attacked by wicked but because of those rehearsals I got out of those dark hours and being uplifted into His light.

I do hope and pray that you can try your best to make music to praise the Lord in anyway you can. If you are in Vancouver I do hope that you can come to our coming concert on December 17, 2011. Let's give thanks to the Lord for what John Stott had done to enhance God's Kingdom and let's make music to praise the Lord!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know how to make music to praise you daily.
Jesus name we pray. Amen.
