**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!

Bible Study

It is so difficult to understand this chapter. God revealed the whole human future to Daniel in a very powerful way.

Some modern commentators view the four beasts as representing nations in the end times. Most Bible scholars regard this vision as a parallel to Nebuchadnezzar's dream in chapter 2 in a deeper way to reveal the inner characteristics of the kingdoms.

The lion, a symbol of royal power, represents the Neo-Babylonian Empire. The eagle, the king of birds, may represent King Nebuchadnezzar's power, and the tearing off the wings would represent what happened in chapter when God humbled the king. The bear raised up on one side represents Medo-Persia, with Persia being dominant. The three ribs in its mouth may represent its conquests of Babylon, Lydia and Egypt. The leopard, a powerful and swift animal, with its four wings, represents the Greek Empire and Alexander the Great's rapid conquests. The four heads are the four kingdoms that came out of his empire when he died, as it was divided among his four generals. The fourth beast was frightening and more powerful than the rest, with iron teeth. This represents Rome, as does the rest of the image. The ten horns correspond with the ten toes of 2: 41-42.

Then the little horn symbolizes the last major ruler in the world - the antichrist (1 Jn 2:18), the man of lawlessness (2 Th 2:3,8), the beast who overpowers three of the ten kings (vv. 11, 24; Rev 13:7 19: 19-20). He will wage war against God's people, capture them (vv. 21-22, 25) and speak against God. But when Jesus Christ returns to earth (v.9), his followers will possess the kingdom (vv. 22, 27; Rev 11:15-18;20:4-6). At that time the antichrist and his forces will be destroyed(vv. 11,26), and he will be thrown into the fiery lake where he will suffer for eternity (Rev. 19:20).
My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Relax, enjoy your time!

Today when I read this very difficult chapter, I was in a quite worry mood seeing all those things happened in the history of mankind and those not yet to come. Then Jesus said to me, "Relax, the time is in my hand. Enjoy your time!"

Thank you Lord! Yes, we as human beings can not alter what God has already planned. But, what God wants us to do each day is to relax and enjoy the time we have on earth being with Him and doing His work!

Relax, enjoy your time!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for your wonderful word to release all my anxiety to my unknown future. Lead us into you love that we understand and experience that you control the time and in your time everything will be well. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
