**NEW link for the 9th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign (from February 6 to May 16, 2012).
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: Ecclesiastes 4

two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4: 12
What I received from Jesus today is: The remedy to loneliness.
What I received from Jesus today is to see a big word coming up in front of me: loneliness.
If you have not read yesterday's blog then you need to go to read it now before read on this post. The "Spiritual Black Hole" condition is just like what St. Augustine's say,
"You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you." (In Latin:
Fecisti nos ad te et inquietum est cor nostrum donec requiescat in te."
When we have not find God and enter into a eternal personal relationship with Him we are restless and people are under oppression without a comforter(vv. 1-3), living in a life envy of other people (vv. 4-6) and deep loneliness! (vv. 7-9)
What is the remedy?
You need to find your other two friends to chat, to share, to eat, to pray and to do God's work.
Last year ACiC and AI launch the first stage of our four years' plan: Raise up Disciplers.
We have a whole year of Discipler123 Campaign and I started to write a new blog, Discipler123 ( http://discipler123.blogspot.com/ )encourage our people to be a discipler to find two other people to have daily devotion together for three month(from March to May, 2011). Three months is a short period of time hoping and praying that after these three months it can be a continuous moments for that three people to form a group of three people for a longer period of time just like what it says here in Ecclesiastes 4: 12.
This year ACiC and AI will launch our second stage: Raise up Evangelists.
We are going to have a year of Evangelist123 Campaign and will start on Easter Sunday. Evangelist123 will be the continuous of the same movement that we launch last year but in a deeper level. Following Jesus to be a discipler and evangelist! We'll have another three months starting from Easter Sunday to encourage our people to try their best to lead two people to Jesus and then using another three months time to be a discipler to help them to have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus through daily devotion. Last year we made 1,000 key "Discipler123" key rings with the Bishop's Seal(my seal) to give to our people and this year we have another 1,000 Evangelist123 LED flash light key rings to our people encouraging them to be a good Evangelist 123 and Discipler123!
These would be a three months plus another three months campaign. Please pray for the success of this new stage, our second stage of our four years campaign to become a "Movement" and not a "Program" to follow Jesus parable of the growing of seeds in Mark 4: 28, "first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head, then the harvest." May God's Kingdom be extended if we can find our other two to be with Jesus and with each others that we will not fall into loneliness!
That is the remedy to loneliness!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to find the remedy of loneliness that in you we can find rest and never be alone. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
