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 132

Please read Psalm 132 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 132:

The Lord swore an oath to David, a sure oath that he will not revoke:
"One of your own descendants I will place on your throne -
if your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them,
then their sons will sit on your throne for ever and ever."
Psalm 132: 11-12

What I received from Jesus today is: Do you expect your prayers to be fulfilled?

Everybody expect their prayers to be fulfilled, right? There must be something wrong when the psalmist prayed like that in this chapter. It seems that the condition of the nation was not good and the psalmist asked God, "You swore an oath to David, what are you doing now? Our nation is facing a total destruction, where are you God?"

Well, lots of time we forget there is a conditional sentence following God's promise. Yes, God's love is unconditional but it does not mean that there is no condition attached to His promise. And the condition is, "If your sons keep my covenant and the statutes I teach them." The fact is the sons of David did not do that and Jerusalem and the temple was destroyed in 586B.C.!

And yet, the promise of God that David's sons will sit on the throne for ever and ever only fulfilled through Jesus Christ, the greatest Son of David, whose "kingdom will never end."

You surely expect your prayers to be fulfilled, then you need to follow Jesus' lead as your Lord that you know the way and have the strength to keep God's covenant and His standards. David's sons could not do that but only Jesus can. Only Jesus can help you that your prayers will be fulfilled!

Dear Lord Jesus,
You are our King and Lord! Lead us so that we know the way and have the strength to keep God's covenant and His standards and that our prayers will be fulfilled. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
