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: Isaiah 13

Please read Isaiah 13 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 Isaiah 13:
Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms,
the glory of the Babylonians pride,
will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah.
Isaiah 13: 19

What I received from Jesus today is: Trust God, got hope!

Sometimes when we fall into our darkest hour we may think, "Oh, I've got nothing! I am finished!"

This chapter gives us hope, lots of hope! Why? Because when Isaiah wrote this chapter it should be at least 150 years before the fall of Babylon. So, this chapter was not written for those around Isaiah because they did not understand. There was not any sign of the rise of Babylon at that time. It was written for those Israelites 150 years later to give them hope! When they read it they understood God gave this prophecy through Isaiah to give them hope and strength! So they got Ezra, Esther and Nehemiah to rebuild Jerusalem after the seventy years of exile during the reign of Babylon. Can you guess how much those Israelites were encouraged when they read this prophecy? That's how meaning and hopeful the word "In that day" or "The day of the Lord" can be. It may means 150 years later or even 540 years later when Jesus, the Messiah, was born!

If you experience God and trust God like that, you will always have hope! You will never be hopeless! Because God is always in control!
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know that you are always in control and we will always have hope. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
