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 130

Please read Psalm 130 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 130:

I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I put my hope.
My soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen wait for the morning,
more than watchmen wait for the morning.

O Israel, put your hope in the Lord, for with the Lord is unfailing love and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel from all their sins.
Psalm 130: 5-8

What I received from Jesus today is: Can't wait and no hope?

What I received from Jesus today is that many people do not have the patience to wait for the Lord to do His work in His own time. Without the waiting people do things with their own effort in their own time and the consequence will be from hopeful to hopeless.

We really need to wait for the Lord before you act. Be more sensitive to His prompting. Sometimes even you wait for a few second and He will give you suitable words for a situation and you need to wait for that before you speak your own words!

Today our new church plant, Emmanuel 330, started another Alpha. As you may know I started this new church plant last March with my ministry partner, Rev. Kenneth Lo who is a Baptist pastor. I waited for the Lord to give me instruction on what praise songs I needed to sing with them and wait for words from the Lord for the conclusion. A new comer came to me and said, "Everything you said is 100% targeted to me and I am surprised that this can happen. I will come from now on to know more about Jesus and want to experience Him." Then Michelle and I prayed for another new comer about the session around 5p.m. and everything seems to tailor made to her need. I experienced the waiting today because usually I did not wait enough but today I did and I thank God for the wait and His provision! Please pray for our four new comers today. All of them have very special needs!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for teaching me a lesson to wait more today until you instructed. Help us to learn the art of waiting so that we can hope in you with great expectation. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
