**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: Amos 1

Please read Amos 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. (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)

Bible Study

Amos was an 8th century B.C. prophet who lived during the same time as Isaiah and Micah (in the southern kingdom of Judah) and Jonah and Hosea (in the northern kingdom of Israel). Amos was a prophet whose home was in Judah, yet whose message was to Israel, the northern kingdom. The name Amos means "burdened" or "burden bearer." His name reflected how he carried the heavy responsibility of confronting Israel's sin and injustice and pronouncing judgment for the nation's rebellion against God and his standards.  

When God sent Amos to Bethel to deliver the message "repent or perish", the prophet was expelled from the city and ordered not to prophesy there again.  After that, Amos apparently returned to his home in Judah and put his message in writing.

Amos begins by pronouncing judgment on Israel's seven neighboring nations.  He lists each nation's particular sins. In each case, the Lord also vows not to hold back his wrath. Amos prophesies that turning to God for mercy and avoid destruction was over, judgment was certain.

What do you think those warning means to those nations?
What do you think those warning means to you?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: The warning is for us, not those bad guys!

What I received from Jesus today is quite shocking. Jesus told us that all those warning to those nations, those bad guys were mostly useless because anyway they did not listen. May be just for a few of them if they really turned back to God.

Those warning are for people later in the history of mankind to see what God can do to those stiff-neck, disobedience, stubborn and sinful people, bad guys! They are for us, for you and me! 

If we insist on going our own way - My way, then one day God's judgment will come to us as it already happened to them. 

Can you see that? Do you understand?
What are you going to do to change and help other people to change to be more like Jesus?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to receive all those warning and be willing and ready to change our lives to be more like you.  In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
