**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 14

Bible Study

This concluding chapter tells us the sins of how the Israelites worshipped idols and turned away from God but to turn to Assyria and Egypt was the reason of their downfall. What they needed to do was to repent and return to God. Then God would heal and restore them, caring for them as a father who has disciplined his children in love. Their lifestyle would be changed and would be beautiful and pure like the lily, like the prized cedar trees of Lebanon, the people would be strong and deeply rooted in God's Word. 

Do we have all those lifestyle changes as described in this chapter to prove that we really have return to God? 

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: You downfall is because of you!

Today Jesus gives us a warning so that we won't follow the same route of downfall as those Israelites. Today a sister in our church shared in today's 9a.m. prayer meeting about how Jesus gave her a renewal through a prophetic message I spoke to her when I laid hands on her during the Eucharist last Sunday. She expected me to pray for her healing of her long time physical suffering. But, instead of praying for her healing I told her that God wanted her to return to her and totally rely on Him and not other ways.  She shared to us this morning that she was about to seek for other help then God that day but my prophetic word gave her such a shock that she suddenly understand the cause of her suffering is not only physical but is because of her relationship with Jesus. And, she needed to not go to 'Assyria' or 'Egypt' for help but return to Jesus!

Wow, praise the Lord that what happened today to May is what it means in this chapter. Lots of time when we are burn-out, depressed, hopeless and want to quit is just because of ourselves! 

Your downfall is just because of you! Got it?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be able to see the real reason for our downfall and that in any time we need to be with you. If we are not with you now, help us to confess our sins and return to you.  In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
