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 23

Please read Isaiah 23 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.

Bible Study

The destruction to a spiritually rebellious Jerusalem started with the city of Tyre, an ancient port city and a centre for world commerce on the east coast of the Mediterranean Sea(present-day Syria, now the most problematic place). Its citizens were wealthy, but evil and full of pride. Isaiah prophesied that God would bring that city down for 70 years and then restore it for a time.

Who planned this against Tyre,
the bestower of crowns,
whose merchants are princes,
whose traders are renowned in the earth?
The Lord Almighty planned it,
to bring low the pride of all glory
and to humble all who are renowned on the earth.
Isaiah 23: 8-9

My Spiritual Journal

Happy Easter!
What I received from Jesus today is: God plans to bring low the pride of all glory!

Do you know Ethiopia, Iraq(Babylon), Greece, Rome and Egypt were once the centre of the world? See the pride of those kings, queens and emperors, what happened to them?! See the pictures of the pride of Mussolini and Hitler, what happened to them?!

Indeed, God plans to bring low the pride of all glory and to humble all who are renowned on the earth! I have seen much! I was once one of those pride! I have experienced how God tested and shaped me and I learn to be humble!

Let me have three questions for you:
1. What have you learned from this chapter especially concerning with the issue of "Pride"?How did God teach you to be humble all the past years?
2. What are those examples that you can recall to help you to be humble?
3. What have you heard from Jesus today?

Dear Lord Jesus,
You have your way and time to bring low the pride of all glory. May we be renewed by you on this Easter Sunday so that we are willing to humble ourselves before you that we can serve and give our lives to the others and to extend you Mighty Kingdom. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
