**NEW link for the 13th 100 days 24 hours prayer campaign (from March 15 to June 22, 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!

     What I got from Jesus is: My spirit is willing, but my body is weak!

     What I got from Jesus today is a reminder of our weakness. Lots of time we are like Peter, thinking that we are not going to do anything against God's will, thinking that even the other people fail we won't. Wrong! We under-estimate Satan's power! Is Satan powerful? No, he is not if we have Jesus to fight against him. But, if we want to fight against Satan, we will soon burnout and then "dead"! For sure!

     See how Jesus fought the great fight. See how He invited His apostles to follow His way to fight. The only way to fight Satan in the most critical hour is to pray like never before.

     When I was in the garden of Gethsemane, I was so sad to feel that night when everyone did not listen to Jesus' strategy to fight that spiritual warfare. Jesus prevailed but all His apostles failed! And, just across the street is the blocked Golden Gate! Do you remember I told you a few days ago in my blog that I could not stop from weeping for more than 1 1/2 hour when I was thinking of how people blocked the Golden Gate to prevent Jesus to come in when he comes again from heaven. How we block the door of our heart each day that Jesus cannot be our Lord! See now why Jesus was so sad, and He may be very sad now if you have closed the door in your heart to block him from entering to be your Lord and King. You must be thinking that you did receive Jesus into your heart long time ago. How come I say that Jesus is outside, right? What I mean is that if you do not allow Jesus to control your life that you are still "in control", I don't think you can live out Jesus is Lord, right?

     We can't make an excuse that "my spirit is willing, but my body is weak"!
     Open your heart to invite Jesus to come in each day to lead you as your Lord and King. Then you can be able to prevail!

     Where is your garden of Gethsemane? Do you have a place to pray like never before following Jesus example? 
Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to the garden of Gethsemane that you prepare for us so that we can follow your good example to pray. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
