**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: Habakkuk 2

Please read Habakkuk 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

In this chapter God gave Habakkuk an answer to his questions about why evil seemed to dominate the world and if it could be allowed to wipe out those who do what is good and right.  The Lord revealed that a time was coming when all the wicked would be destroyed and the only people not shaken would be those who trust God and do what is right by his standards.  Such people are related to God by their faith.

Habakkuk's declaration that "the righteous will live by his faith" (2:4) is the key Old Testament text used by Paul in his teaching on justification by faith.  This refers to the spiritual truth that we are made right with God not by any good works of our own, but by accepting Christ's gracious sacrifice and forgiveness for our sins, then entrusting our lives to God's lead.  Paul quotes 2:4 both in Romans 1:17 and Galatians 3:11. 

Are you living by your faith that even in today's confused and evil world and the unknown future that God is in total control and that you can be with God forever?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: The righteous will live by his faith!
What I received from Jesus is an affirmation and comfort to our present dark world. There are so many unknown ahead of us. We just got a 7.7 earthquake just seven hours ago(Vancouver time Sat. 8p.m.). I did not feel the earthquake but there is a possibility that more are yet to come!
This is from CBC news five hours ago:
At least three tsunami waves have been reported on the British Columbia coast, following a 7.7-earthquake that struck near Haida Gwaii on Saturday night.
The waves have not caused any damage, but there have been evacuations in Haida Gwaii and Port Edward, near Prince Rupert. Officials say it's not clear how many people have been driven from their homes.

Some people are in a frightened mode about the rumour of the end of the world may come on December 21, 2012.

What I got from today's message is that God always has his own time and his own plan. What we need to know is that we stand firm and have our total trust in God.

the righteous will live by his faith! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Remove all our doubt and fear and that we can be able to stand firm, walk with you each day trusting in your good time everything will be well. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
