**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 8

Please read Zechariah 8 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 refer to the renewed and restored Jerusalem in which Christ will reign on earth at the end of history. At that time, God's presence will make Jerusalem a city of truth and faithfulness, and the mountain of the Lord again will be holy.

This chapter gives ten blessings that will characterize Christ's earthly reign at the end of history, each one beginning with the phrase, "This is what the Lord Almighty says."

This time will be a time of unprecedented joy when people from all nations join Jews in worshiping the Lord in Jerusalem, for the Lord will be there among his people.  This pictures the final fulfillment of the promise God made to Abraham that Gentiles would be brought into the Lord's family. 

On the other hand, it is also a message to encourage the Jews through Zechariah that they should have no fear but with strong hands to build God's temple.

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Be strong to build God's temple!
What I received from Jesus today is another confirmation that God wants us to have strong hands to build God's temple.

This temple can be a physical one if God's time has come for your church to build a new church. This temple can also be our call to build our home church to be a place with God's presence and that each one of us can have at least ten relatives and friends to bring to Jesus to become faithful disciples of him. 

If this is really God's time for us, Richmond Emmanuel Church, to purchase our own land and to build our church, do you think you can help us to make this a reality?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to have strong hands so that we can build your temple knowing that our future is always in your hand.  In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
