**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 5

Please read Amos 5 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

This chapter is a lament, a song of grief and mourning from God for his own people because of their sins.  The song conveys the certainty of their doom, speaking as if it had already taken place.  If the people would desperately ask God for mercy and begin seeking a renewed relationship with him, some of them could be spared from the doom and destruction Amos spoke about.  But if they continued to look for hep and guidance from anywhere else(Bethel and Gilgal had become places for idol worship), God's judgment would consume them like a fire.

How much time have we been using seeking other things than being with Jesus each day? How many time we rather seek help from other people and things rather than seeking help from Jesus?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Why you don't come to me?

What I received from Jesus today is a song of grief and mourning from Jesus and his saying "Why you don't come to me?"

I just listened and watched a lament for Apple's founder, Steve Job, when I clicked google. They use J.S.Bach's unaccompanied cello suite No. 1 as the lament with some historical and landmarks photos of Steve Job. Yes, Steve Job was a great man to invent Apple and I am using his invention now when I was typing in the MacBook Pro. Yes, he died so young! When I was listening to the music of J.S. Back and seeing all those historical photos about Steve Job I was mourning for his passing away so young without knowing Jesus Christ as his Lord of life! Life can pass just like that no matter you are the greatest person on earth or you are nothing to mention of. The most important thing is that how you are mention by Jesus up there! What is the daily intimate personal relationship with Jesus that you will be remembered by Jesus on this Thanksgiving Sunday! 

Come to Jesus each day to be with him, to walk with him and to enjoy his company before it's too late!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to cherish our privilege that we can come to you each day through reading your holy Word and being with you. And give us the anointing that we can teach and lead others to do so.  In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
