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!

Bible Study

This passage records the famous "empty tomb" event that Jesus is risen. Peter and John (the other disciple) "saw and believed".

Jesus is risen, he is so real, God is so real! What have you seen so far, is God so real to you? Have you seen and believe?

Have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"



Spiritual Journal

What I heard from Jesus today is: God is so real!

What I received from Jesus is that He reminds me of two events:
1. God is so real - Two weeks ago when we had dinner with a family from our church we heard a wonderful testimony of how real God really is. Lorraine who has been in England for a year of Dancing Ministry shared with us how she experienced the living God through her one year of experience in England. She was in a big Dancing Ministry event with more than 10,000 young people worship the Living God on a big platform and she felt that God is so real. When she was sharing that experience I saw her whole face was shining with a very special "joy" I rarely see and I gave thanks to the Lord because she experienced the Living God! Yes, God is so real!

2. God is dead - Our family is having a holiday in Italy now driving around Milan, Verona, Venice, Florence, Siena and Rome. Our son Ignatius shared with us how painful he is when he saw those famous cathedrals and churches with big advertisement hanging outside and people need to pay 8 euros to go inside to look at historical places. He said, "That's why so many people think that God is dead. Churches are now only historical remnants."

You can see the three pictures I took with large size advertisement outside. One is the famous church in Milan with the famous Da Vinci's "Jesus last supper". The other is the famous Milan Cathedral. Can you believe that can happen that a church can allow such a big advertisement selling famous brand shoes and clothes to be hanged on the wall of a church outside? Why? It's a money issue! When God is alive then people will offer beyond what they can offer to God. Even big and beautiful basilicas and cathedrals! When people think that God is dead and they can not experience the living God, churches have no money and they have to use their historical churches to make money so that they can live! How sad!

Let's show how real God is with everything we have got so that people won't think God is dead any more!

Dear Lord Jesus,
You are the living God! We give thanks to you that you are so real and alive. Help us to show to other people that you are so real and alive. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Bible Study

This passage records the burial of Jesus and how Joseph of Arimethea and Nicodemus offered to Jesus. Joseph of Arimethea kept it secret that he was a disciple of Jesus but he declared his position in front of Pilate to claim the body of Jesus and he gave Jesus his own new tomb. Nicodemus, the one who Jesus talked about born again in John 3 and who stood up for Jesus in John 7: 50-52. He brought 80 pounds of myrrh and aloes. It's a hundred times the amount that Mary had poured over Jesus in Bethany (John 12:3). Which means if what Mary poured to Jesus costed one year's wages then what Nicodemus brought was one hundred years wages. Say one year's wages of an average worker in Canada is around Cad$30,000 to $40,000 then what Nicodemus offered was three to four million Canadian dollars!

That's how they offered to their King, their Savior, their Lord!
What can you offer to your King, your Savior, your Lord!

Have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"



Spiritual Journal

What I heard from Jesus today is: What can you offer to Your King?

What I got from Jesus today is a very simple question. How is your offering lately and how much do you spend your money as compare to your offering?

Do you think one day you can offer a year's wages like Mary did to Jesus and do you think you can like Nicodemus offered three millions dollars to Jesus. You need to know no one knows if Nicodemus's yearly wages equal to three million Canadian dollars or not. So, we do not need to compare the two of them who is offering more than the others.

The question is very simple: What can you offer to your King?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to trust you in money issue that we can offer as much as we can offer according to your call. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Today's Reading: John 19: 31-37

Please click this link to read John 19: 31-37

Bible Study

This passage records what happened as it had been prophesied in Psalm 34:20 and Zechariah 12: 10 and how the bones of a lamb for Passover meal should not be broken in Exodus 12: 46 and Numbers 9: 12. Yes, it had been told and prophesied that when the Messiah died as the Lamb for the Passover would be like that.

On the other hand, the important thing to us can be shown from 1 John that when Jesus comes, He comes with three things: the Holy Spirit, the water and the blood. This is what is in 1 John 5: 6-8:

This is the one who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ. He did not come by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.

Jesus died for you and there comes the flow of blood and water. Do you have that three things in your life that you are cleansed by the water, saved and protected by the blood of Jesus and filled with the Holy Spirit?

Have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"



Spiritual Journal

What I heard from Jesus today is: Flows of blood and water!

We have got a good check-point today that Jesus challenges us whether we have got the three things in our lives and as our lifestyle: the water, the blood and the Holy Spirit. If we have Jesus comes in to our lives, our lifestyle should be changing towards Christlikeness day after day and our lives should be totally different!

Come Lord Jesus,
Cleanse us with your water, cover and protect us with your blood and fill us with the Holy Spirit. Come, Lord Jesus come. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

Bible Study

This passage records the moment that Jesus completed God's assignment in His earthly life of about 33 years. When that happened, everything seems stop and at the same time everything starts!

What have you seen when you meditate on this moment with your imagination like the director of the movie "Passion"? How would you capture this moment of "completion"? What have you got from Jesus in this moment?

Have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"



Spiritual Journal

What I heard from Jesus today is: How willing are you to complete God's assignment?

God has a lot of assignments for you. Do you know that? Some you passed, some you failed and some you have not yet completed.

What I have seen today are two vivid pictures:
1. I see Jesus dashing through the finishing line like those winners in the Olympic with shouting all around for their victory. How well are we willing to complete this race in our lifelong journey and at the end we have the shouting from our cheering team(the angels and archangels) when we complete the final dash! How wonderful and glorious! What are those assignments that the Lord has prepared for you now and how well are you finishing those?

2. I see Jesus passed the baton to his beloved apostle John to take care of His mother and John took the baton willingly! So moving! Do you know Jesus wants to pass a baton to you so that you can take care of someone like John took care of Jesus mother? Are you willing to spend the time, money and everything to do this "caring" project?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to be willing to complete your assignments that you name will be glorified. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
