**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: Zechariah 4

Please read Zechariah 4 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 Joshua received the spiritual authority from God ready to do the job of a high priest, here in this chapter God started to lay out his plan for them to do God's job.

First, an olive oil lampstand with seven lights that the oil flowed from the bowl through the seven channels to the lights to keep the lamps full and burning symbolized God's endless and unlimited power through the Holy spirit.  The multiple lamps represent God's people spreading his light to the world because of the abundant flow of the Holy Spirit's power in their lives.

The two olive trees represent the royal and priestly ministries of Zerubbabel, the governor, and Joshua, the high priest who were anointed to serve the Lord of all the earth.

With that preparation from God, they could experience the power of the Holy Spirit to complete God's work to build God's temple after 16 years of delay.

Are you waiting for the power of God to do something? Do you know what you need to do now? 

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: You can't do it, but I can!
What I received from Jesus today is a reminder of how limited we are as human beings. Does that means that we don't need to do anything but just wait for God to act? Not at all!

What we need to do is to have yesterday's message to go back to the root of spiritual authority, Jesus Christ our Lord. To put down our filthy clothes living in holiness, be as close as possible to the Word of God so that we can do God's Kingdom work. Then we will be anointed just like how God anointed Joshua and Zerubbabel, receiving the unlimited source of power from the Holy Spirit. Then 

You will see how great God is to do those things that we can never think of! 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to know that we cannot but you can. Prepare our lives to be willing for your work to begin and complete.  In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
