     What I got from Jesus is: believing, praying, fasting!
     Today passage teaches us about what is true believing. Do you know?
True believing is following Jesus way of life. I had been a piano teacher for 18 years, since I was 15 year of age. I taught my student to follow how I played and everything. I took them to concerts and taught them to imitate what those famous pianist did.

     Now, the point is Jesus could do that and his disciples could not so they asked Jesus. What did Jesus tell them. "Because you did not pray and fast."

     Praying and fasting goes together. But, many Christians do not understand the importance of have the two together. I fast at least 80 to 100 days a year since many years ago. I understand and experience the fruit and power of fasting. Do you?

     Richmond Emmanuel is having the first time a church-wide 40 days fasting and prayers since January 1, 2013. Many brothers and sisters are fasting now. I started a 40 days fasting Oct. 25 last year so this is my second 40 days fasting and many wonderful things have happened already in my personal, spiritual life as well as in our church.

     If Jesus said that believing, praying and fasting is so, so important. Why  most Christians don't fast?

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to be able to understand and experience the fruit and power of fasting and prayers.  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!
