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 then prayerfully 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. 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!

Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the Lord, and when he heard them his anger was aroused. Then fire from the Lord burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp.


The rabble with them began to crave other food.


But while the meat was still between their teeth and before it could be consumed, the anger of the Lord burned against the people, and he struck them with a severe plague.


I will take of the Spirit that is on you and put the Spirit on them. They will help you carry the burden of the people os that you will not have to carry it alone.


Then the Lord came down in the cloud and spoke with him, and he took of the Spirit that was on him and put the Spirit on the seventy elders. When the Spirit rested on them, they prophesied, but they did not do so again.

Numbers 11: 1, 4, 33, 17, 25



What I heard from Jesus today is: Burnout and become greedy so soon?!

It is so sad and yet funny that last chapter describes how obedience and ready the Israelites and this chapter has a 180 degree change to burnout, complaint, grumbling and greedy. How could that happen?

Jesus gives me a clue of why so many churches and Christians have never got rid of serious problems about people. People are so difficult to change, renewal and to deal with. I have seen too much complaints, grumblings, greedy self-centered power-gripped desire and all kinds of human weaknesses!

How to deal with this human weaknesses? There is a clue here in this chapter. The clue is the filling of the Holy Spirit to all the leaders, or at least top leaders just as the seventy Israel's elders. Only if more and more leaders are being filled and anointed by the Holy Spirit than we can have an opportunity to deal with this kind of human weaknesses and problems.

Let's pray each day for the filling and anointing of the Holy Spirit so that we can have the gifts to do God's ministries and the power to extend God's Kingdom!

Dear Holy Spirit,
Fill us and anoint us to do Your Kingdom ministries. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
