**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: Zephaniah 3

Please read Zephaniah 3 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 last chapter of Zephaniah gives us two pictures. From verses 1 to 7 was the prophecy of the destruction of Jerusalem and God's people.  The had become rebellious toward God and opposed to his law. Moral corruption and decay had penetrated every level of society, from the officials and rulers, the prophets, the priests and the leaders. People everywhere were refusing to listen to God's true prophets.

Then from verses 8-20 shows another picture. It's about God's plan of salvation for the nations.  The involves God's ongoing purpose to have a personal relationship with all who entrust their lives to him, but it also includes his ultimate end-time purpose to rescue all who remain faithful to him.  He will restore their honor after they have been purified by his judgment.  The nations will someday be reconciled to God, and he will renew his relationship with all people on earth.  These promises will be fulfilled when Christ rules during the millennium. (Rev. 20:4).

What is your relationship with God recently? The first part of this chapter, verses 1 to 7 or the second part of this chapter, verses 8-20? 
My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: He Will quiet you with his love!
What I received from Jesus today is a very, very strong feeling of being loved by him! This seven words in the middle of verse 17 is perhaps the most important wordless sign of love from God to me.

When I remember this seven words from the Lord I always think of a photo taken by one of our parishioners some years ago when Michelle and I was sitting in the chairs of Richmond Emmanuel Church during a talk. I love this picture because it shows the wordless sign of love as in these seven words:
He will quiet you with his love!

How wonderful it is that we can be embrace by God's love each day in this way!

Thank you Lord for your love!
And thank you Lord for Michelle's love to me! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to experience this kind of deep love from you. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
