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 95

Please read Psalm 95 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 95:

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker;
for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.

Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah,
as you did that day at Massah in the desert,
where your fathers tested and tried me, though they had seen what I did.
Psalm 95: 7-8

What I received from Jesus today is: Do not harden your hearts!

Just an hour ago someone from our new church plant "Emmanuel 330" which takes place in a Chinese Seafood Restaurant every Wednesday 3:30p.m. told me, "I keep hearing from God to remind me that I should not harden my heart and listen to Him." It is a miracle that because of our Restaurant ministry the marriage of this lady and her husband is being completely healed and restored after two months of hard works. And this evening she told me that Jesus told her not to harden her heart for many weeks!

What would happen if we harden our hearts? According to this psalm, the answer is:
1. We will not listen and obey to his voice.
2. We can not sing for joy and we will be pulled into sorrow and darkness.
3. We will go astray, away from the Lord and can never enter into His rest.

We had another lady had her testimony of how the Lord made use of our Restaurant ministry to give her rest that she can be able to sleep. She could not be able to sleep well for more than 30 years! I asked her when was the turning point. She said it was when she opened her heart and invited Jesus into her heart to be her Savior and Lord of life.

What would happen if people from a whole nation harden their hearts? Just like those Israelites to wander in the desert for 40 years or more painful experience.

Do not harden your heart, please!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Pour down your blood to soften our hearts that we can listen to you and obey your command.
Jesus name we pray. Amen.
