**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: Hosea 7

Please read Hosea 7 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below.

Bible Study

Hosea describes the Israelites were full of lies and wickedness(v. 3) and just a half-baked piece of bread, useless at all! Why? Because they had close relationship with ungodly people from surrounding nations adopting many of their corrupt beliefs, customs and lifestyles.  As a result, they were as worthless to God's purposes as a half-baked piece of bread.

They even rebelled against God by refusing to recognize him as the One who could help them and seek for help from Egypt and Assyria.

The most serious sin was that they did not know that God is aware of all of our thoughts and actions and he records them in his books (Rev. 20:12). This forgetfulness and rebellious led them to be engulfed by their sins(v. 2).

Would you do the same mistakes as they did?
How can you help more people to understand that God is the only one who can help us and save us?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Full of lies and wickedness! Just a half-baked piece of bread!

What I received from Jesus today is reminder of how He loves us, care for us and protect us.  But we often follow wrong people or wrong things and not Him. We so often being rotten by this culture full of lies and wickedness and not willing to be transformed by our Lord Jesus Christ.

The worst thing I have experienced is what is in verse 15, those I trained and strengthened plotted evil against me! Sometimes it nearly killed me! But, that's how God's people did and have been doing. We have to accept this can happen and not be discouraged. Just that we won't be those people to plot evil against God's servants thinking that they are not God's servants and we have the 'right" to kill them in the name of God! Watch out!

It's your daily choice to establish a personal intimate relationship with Jesus and not this rotten culture. Don't be just a half-baked piece of bread, useless at all! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us not to make the same mistake as the Israelites to be just a half-baked piece of bread. Train us and strengthen us that we can be useful to you and your Kingdom ministry.  In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
