     What I got from Jesus is: Admit that you are a sinner!
     What I got from Jesus today is a very important thing for us to deal with before we decide to follow Jesus. We have to admit that we are sinners!

     Jesus and John the Baptist said the same thing in the beginning of their ministry: Repent, for the Kingdom of God is near.  It is not "we were sinners" but "we are sinners".

     There are quite a number of Christians thinking that they are so righteous, so they point their fingers to other people.  In Luke 15:1-7, when Jesus talks about the lost sheep. Jesus says:
     I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.

     The worst thing is for a Christian who thinks that he does not need to repent because he doesn't think that he is a sinner anymore. Stop that! We have too many Pharisees accuse their own brothers and sisters in all kinds of way.  Don't do that!

     Also, when you sin, Satan always attack you telling you in this ways, "You are hopeless. You are a sinner. See, you repent and you did it again. Don't waste your time. Leave Jesus and follow me. I have a better deal for you."
You need to tell Satan, "Yes, I am a sinner. That's why I need Jesus' blood to forgive my sin and I need Jesus to be my Savior and Lord. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ I command you to leave."

     Admit that you are a sinner so that Jesus' healing can start in you!

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to admit that we are sinners and only in you can we find rest.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

**NEW link for the 12th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign (from December 04, 2012 to March 14, 2013)

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 1,200 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 1,200 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!
