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 126

Please read Psalm 126 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 126:

Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.
Psalm 126: 5

What I received from Jesus today is: Sow in tears, harvest with joy!

"Sow in tears, harvest with joy" is the message on each one of all AMiAs bishops' stole. Archbishop Yong Ping Chung asked the ladies in Sabah to make those stoles for all AM bishops since 2000. You can see in the two pictures those stoles. The first picture was taken in my Installation in September 2009 with Archbishop Yong, Bishop TJ and me with the stoles. The second one was taken from a confirmation at Toronto Emmanuel Church in September 2009.

So, Psalm 126 is the vision from Archbishop Yong to the AMiAs and we dearly and powerfully experienced how it has been working in us. We had just eight churches when we established in 2000 and now we have more than 270 churches. The fruitfulness is a clear sign of how we are blessed by the Lord for the past eleven years.

I deeply believe that we have entered a "pruning" stage after the past ten years and after this "pruning" crisis and challenge we will return with songs of joy experiencing another harvest!

Pray for us and I sincerely pray that you will also experience what it says in this psalm in your life!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for how you have done great things for us. Help us to be able to sow in tears that we will reap with songs of joy. Thank you Lord!
