**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 10

Please read Daniel 10 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.)

Bible Study

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Ephesians 6: 10-13

This chapter gives us a clear picture of what Paul means in Ephesians 6: 10-13, a glimpse of the unseen battles going on in the spiritual realm.

While Daniel was fasting and praying, an intense battle was raging in the spiritual realm. The "prince of the Persian kingdom" temporarily prevented Daniel from receiving God's message from the angel. Because of this conflict, he had to wait 21 days for the revelation. This Persian prince was not a human ruler, but a demon from Satan's kingdom. He was defeated only when Michael, Israel's prince(v.21) came to help the angel.

If you can not understand that it is because you are not a man or woman of fasting and praying. If you are, then you will understand what Daniel and Paul said and experienced!

Certainly God himself can overrule such spiritual obstacles and delays, but he chooses to work through our fasting and praying.

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: How can you stand against Satan's attack?

What I received from Jesus today is we can not stand against Satan's attack unless we learn and exercise pray, fast, wait, listen and obey.

Yes, that is "pray, fast, wait, listen and obey"!

Lots' of people think of how can we put on the full armor of God and we can prevail. Turn to Ezekiel 37 and read, if we are one of those dry bones, how can we have that armor to put on? If we are revived and renewed by the Holy Spirit then we will be filled by the Holy Spirit and join the vast army of God(Ezekiel 37: 10). Then God will give us that full armor each day and we will join in to fight a good fight for God each day. What is the use of just one lonely soldier fighting a warfare he or she does not understand?

That's the way to stand against Satan's attack:

That's why all three of my mom's children, Ada, Dennis and me become God's faithful servants. Because my grandmother who passed away 50 years ago fast and pray, and my mother fast and pray! Wow! That's what Jesus just told me! Praise the Lord! And thanks Mom for your fasting and praying!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for revealing this simple but very important strategy to stand against Satan's attack. Help us to know that this is from you and that we just listen and obey. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

Below is from my blog yesterday if you happens not have time to read it
I have told brothers and sisters many, many times in Richmond Emmanuel Chruch that the Lord revealed to me about ten years ago that when REC has more than 100 people coming to our weekly prayer meeting something "wonderful" will happen. Only a few believed and now we still have only about 25 every Saturday at 9a.m. People say why they need to come because they have all kinds of prayers. Well, it is just what I receive from our Lord Jesus Christ ten years ago and I just faithfully said it out. There was just one time that we had more than 100 people and that was during our Gospel Camp and we had 127 brothers and sisters woke up in the morning and prayed at 7a.m. We witnessed a brother who could not walked for two years and was sitting in a wheel chair could walk that day. He even invited his family members to sit in his wheel chair and he pushed the wheel chair. Just one time! So, if you are members of Richmond Emmanuel Church of if you can come to REC on Saturday at 9a.m., come. I do think that the number "100" is not a secret number but it's a call from our Lord for us to gather and to pray. To exercise the power of prayers and to experience the power of prayers.

Do you remember I shared about our "nearly" fatal car accident in Italy two weeks ago? My sister Ada told me that my mom got a message from the Lord to fervently prayed for all four of us for hours one day because she sensed that we were in danger. It could be that time when we were nearly killed, all four of us, and my mom prayed for us for a few hours!

My mom fasted one day a week and prayed for me, my sister Ada and brother Dennis since 1982(30 years!) when she knew that I responded to a call from the Lord to leave my job to prepare myself to be an Anglican priest. One of the fruit of her fasting and prayers is that all three of us graduated from seminaries, my brother and I were ordained as Anglican priests(Dennis is now the overseer of a series of churches and Christian organization he established quite some years ago) and my sister has been a high school principal but also an Evangelist planted a new church in her school 17 years ago!

So, have you got enough confirmation to start you fasting and praying and try all you best to come to Richmond Emmanuel Church every Saturday at 9a.m. so that we can pray and to experience in unity the power of fasting and praying?

The end time is come or already here. This is not the time for talking, talking and talking but a time for us to really do those things Jesus call us to do. The most important thing for us to do is to fast and pray!

And, one request, could you pray for my mom daily and my family including my sister Ada, and my brother Dennis' family. You can see their faces here in today's blog. My mom is going to have her 85th birthday Oct. 17 and I will be there with her that day in HK.
