**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!

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.
