**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: Haggai 2

Please read Haggai 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.

Bible Study

The book of Haggai has four main messages. We have the first message yesterday of Haggai's harsh challenge to the former exiles for being preoccupied with their own concerns and let God's house remained in ruins. As a result of Haggai's challenge, they restarted the work on God's temple (1: 12-15).

Now in this last chapter we got the remaining three messages.
The second message is that after a few weeks later, some of the people's opinions regarding the new temple began to have discouragement in the rest of the people. They thought the present efforts at rebuilding were nothing compared to the greatness of the first temple. But Haggai encouraged them that their efforts were a prophetic part of God's larger plans (2: 4-7) and God promised that the glory of this new temple will be greater than the glory of the former temple.  

The third message is that Haggai called the people to lives of holy obedience (2: 10-19) and the fourth message is about a prophecy about Zerubbabel, who represented the royal family line through which the promised Messiah ultimately would come. 

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: God has chosen you to build his temple! 
What I received from Jesus today is an invitation to build or rebuild our physical and spiritual temple. How?
1. Physical temple: we need to be strong and have the team work as God anointed Haggai and Zechariah to give the prophecy and then Zerubbabel and Joshua and the remnant of the people to do the work. They need to be strong and to remove all their fear that they did not have the resources to build the temple.  Because God says, "The silver is mine and the gold is mine".

2. Spiritual temple: They needed to have a renewal of their life that they lives according to God's command.

Are you ready to build His temple?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know that it is you who choose us to build you temple. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
