**NEW link for the 11th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign(from August 25 to December 03, 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 to pray for me, my family and my ministry, 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. This campaign is also to teach you that you need somebody to pray for you daily. I have been prayed for hourly the past 1,100 days and I have never experienced this kind of peace and protection before. It's just beyond words can express. If I did not listen and obey to Jesus call 1,100 days ago to start this prayer movement, I think I would be pulled into darkness and discouragement already! 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: Daniel 1

Please read Daniel 1 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

We start a new book today. The book of the prophet Daniel is a difficult book just like Ezekiel for us to understand, yet if we understand our lives will be changed totally.

When God gave Nebuchadnezzar victory over Jehoiakim in 605 B.C., the Babylonian king took some of the sacred items from the temple, along with some of the most highly regarded young men. Since the destruction of Nineveh, the former Assyrian capital, seven years earlier, the Babylonian Empire had grown so fast that they did not have enough of their own educated young people to run the government. So Nebuchadnezzar took good-looking, healthy, well-educated young men to Babylon in order to teach them the culture and language so they could be part of the king's royal service. Among them were Daniel and his three friends.

We need to know that the reason that the young men refused to receive the same food and wine served to King Nebuchadnezzar was that the foods may have already been offered to idols representing false gods. To eat such food would have violated God's laws and to drink the wine could have dulled their minds because of its intoxicating effect. Daniel and his friends made up their minds from the start not to compromise their spiritual values and convictions even if it meant death.

We are in a more corrupted culture than Daniel's time, how are you going to stay clean so that Jesus can be your real Savior, Lord and King?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: How can you stay clean in this corrupted culture?

The answer to today's question from Jesus is not easy. The only way for us to stay clean could be these three:
1. To read and understand God's Word more and more so that we know God's perfect standard.
2. To have a daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus so we can listen to Jesus NO or YES everyday.
3. To be filled by the Holy Spirit so that we can have the power to confront this evil culture and to have the courage to do what Jesus wants you to do.

These are what I got from Jesus today. Do you think these simple three points can help you to stay clean each day?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thanks you for you daily presence that we can be able to stay clean everyday to do your Holy work. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
