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 122

Please read Psalm 122 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.)

Chinese praise song -
我的心你要稱頌耶和華 Praise the Lord, O My Soul

Please click the links below to Psalm 122:

I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD.
Psalm 122: 1(King James Version)

What I received from Jesus today is: Don't be late for worship!

Yes, this is what I got from our Lord Jesus Christ today. At first, I was thinking of "Pray for Jerusalem", then "Those Who Love Jerusalem Be Secure". But, the Lord said NO. And it is "Don't be late for worship!!!"

The famous anthem "I was glad" composed by Sir Charles Henry Parry is one of my favourite pieces. This was also one of the Anthem in Prince William and Kate's wedding this July. Every time I listened my soul was being lifted up to a joyful state looking forward to worship God in His temple with tears pouring out my eyes. Every time I conducted this piece(and most of the time I conducted that in a church) I felt the powerful presence of God in that church and my joy to lead all the worshippers to have that JOY to worship Him! Praise the Lord that I am moved to have the first song in our coming O Music concert to be "I was glad". The concert will be May 26, 2012 and we will decide the venue in due course.

So, how can we be late for worship! I do not know the situation of your church, but we (Richmond Emmanuel Church) has a very serious "late for worship" situation! I do need your prayers for our people that this situation will be changed and that most people will come in to worship not only punctual. Punctual is not enough, but to come in for worship at least 10 minutes before. This will need a miracle and I pray that this miracle will happen before the end of this year! I encourage you to share my message today to other people telling them they can't be late for worship.

It should be such a joy to worship the Lord in His temple. Let's go to His temple with a joyful heart and a prepared soul.

Don't be late for worship!!!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to set a good example for other Christians that we will never be late for worship. And, help us to have a joyful heart looking forward to go to your temple to worship you every week. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
