**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 2

Please read Amos 2 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

After Amos pronounced judgment on Israel's seven neighboring nations, he pronounced judgment on God's chosen people, Judah and Israel, for their sins.
Let's examine those sins and see if you have committed any of those sins:
For Judah:
1. Rejection of God's law and refusal to keep his commands (V.4).
2. Idolatry: Conformed to the ungodly lifestyles of surrounding nations by worshipping other gods(V.4).

For Israel:
1. Mistreating the poor (vv. 6-7).
2. Living immorally (v.7).
3. Corrupting the worship of God (vv. 7-8).
4. Oppose the ministry of God's true prophets. (v.12)
5. Turn their back to God who brought them up (vv. 9-11).
6. Defy God's holiness by making the Nazirites to drink (vv. 11-12).

Do you think you are committing with any of those sins? If you think that you have not, I think you must be "joking" or you really are very holy!  

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: You'll perish if you follow them!

What I received from Jesus today is for us to examine ourselves carefully through those sins lists above. It concerns with our real relationship with God, our lifestyle and our love to other people.

You'll perish if you follow them!
How Christ-like are you lately? 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Open our eyes that we can see where we really are and not following those sins that Judah and Israel committed. Help us to truly follow you each day and not other things or people.  In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
