Relationship Building Principle-Humble Prayer

john : May 7, 2015 2:43 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Kings 8:28.

Solomon prayed, “Give attention to your servant’s prayer and his plea for mercy, O LORD my God. Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.”

This is the verse connecting with the theme for the National Day of Prayer today-“Lord, Hear Our Cry.”

This theme emphasizes our need to trust in the unfailing character of God, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and people. The National Honorary Chairman, Dr. Jack Graham, has written a prayer for this special occasion. This is part of that prayer:

“We come to You in the Name that is above every name-Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Our hearts cry out to You. Knowing that You are a prayer-answering, faithful God-the One we trust in times like these-we ask that You renew our spirits, revive our churches, and heal our land. We repent of our sins and ask for Your grace and power to save us. Hear our cry, oh God, and pour out Your Spirit upon us that we may walk in obedience to Your Word. In Jesus’ name, our Savior, Amen.”

Humbling ourselves to Pray for our nation is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Righteousness

john : May 6, 2015 2:51 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK-Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Proverbs 14:34.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people.”

Peace flows out of a climate where worship for God is sincere and His Gospel is lived out with love and integrity. But when sin takes root in a civilization, the door is open for division and disorder.

On a recent Probe program, Kirby Anderson pointed out the stages that civilizations pass through on their way to greatness and eventual decline. As nations ascend to greatness, they pass through the stages of spiritual faith, great courage, liberty, and abundance.

On their way toward decline, civilizations typically pass through the stages of selfishness, complacency, apathy, and moral decay.

What is your prayer request for the nation that you live in? History and Biblical wisdom highlight the value of righteousness to strengthen a nation and reflect God’s glory. Psalm 33:12 says, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.”

Righteousness is a relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Prayer

john : May 5, 2015 5:05 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from First Timothy 2:1-4.

“I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone-for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”

In a world where many opinions are expressed in the public square, it is important to remember the power of prayer expressed in the privacy of a closet. This Scripture is an invitation to pray on behalf of others, including people in positions of authority such as church leaders, government leaders, business leaders, teachers, and parents. Our prayers to God have a way of changing our own attitude toward people. William Law once said, “There is nothing that makes us love a man so much as praying for him.” That is because in intercession, our heart becomes more aligned with God’s heart for that person. However God responds to our prayers for someone, we know this: God is pleased by our petitions, and works in response to our prayers to bring souls into God’s Kingdom.

Prayer is a vital relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.

Relationship Building Principle-Greet By Name

john : May 1, 2015 3:57 pm : John Shirk, Staff Pages

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Relationship-Building Principle comes from Third John, verse 14b.

Peace to you. The friends here send their greetings. Greet the friends there by name.

It may be challenging to remember the names of the people we meet, but calling people by name is often a bridge-builder. In a climate where businesses often identify us by number, it is refreshing to be known by our name. This is the way of God toward His creation.

The Bible says He knows the stars by name. Do you know how many stars are in the universe? According to Nick Vujicic of Life Without Limbs, astronomers estimate there are 3 hundred sextillion stars in the universe, which amounts to 3 with 23 zeroes after it. Psalm 147, verse 4 says about the LORD, “He determines the number of stars and calls them each by name.”

He is not just personally familiar with the stars. He is also personally familiar with His people. David wrote in Psalm 139, “You have searched me and you know me….” And verse 3 says, “You are familiar with all my ways.” So, when we greet each other by name, we are reflecting the personal friendship that the Lord offers us.

Greeting friends by name is a relationship-building principle to take to heart in the Year of Connection.
