**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: Malachi 1

Please read Malachi 1 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

The name Malachi means "my messenger." He was a deeply devoted Jew living in Judah after the exile.  Malachi lived during the same period as Nehemiah.  Malachi was most likely a priest as well as a prophet.  His message placed a firm emphasis on faithfulness to God's covenant.  He also took a bold stand against thoughtless and insincere worship(1:7-2:9), idol worship(2:10-12), divorce (2:13-16) and robbing God of tithes and offerings (3: 8-10).

The book consists of a six-part "Oracle" (prophetic message) introduced by the phrase, "the word of the Lord to Israel through Malachi" (1:1).  The statements from God are intermingled with a series of ten rhetorical and sarcastic questions that represented Israel's attitude toward God at that time.

Chapter 1 consists of the first oracle that God affirmed and reemphasized his love for Israel (1: 2-5). The second oracle is from 1:6 to 2:9 that God charged the priests with being unfaithful leaders and guardians of the covenant relationship between God and Israel. They were showing a complete lack of respect for Go by offering to him animals that were crippled or diseased; this was contrary to God's law, which required unblemished sacrifices, the best of their flocks and herds. They were charged to give the leftovers to God rather than the best to God as he commanded.

How about you? Do you give your best to God or just your leftovers?

My Spiritual Journal

What I got from Jesus today is: Don't give your leftovers to God!
What I received from Jesus today is a warning to all of us whether we are giving our leftovers to God and not our best.

What is your answer to God's question to you today?

If you think you have given God the best, how do you know that is really the best? How much have you kept for yourself and how much to God?

If you know that you are giving your leftovers to God, what can you do to stop making that mistake? 

Dear Holy Spirit,
Shine on us that we can be able to see what we have been offering to you, our leftovers or our best.  Help us to repent if we are giving our leftovers to you and that we can be able to have that faith to give you the best.  In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
