1Kings 8-10 Solomon’s Prayer
God has blessed us with many prayers of HIs people just like Solomon’s. Each has the outline of adoration, confession, and supplication, and we would do well to include those in our prayers. Just as Daniel included himself, so did Solomon, as he prayed that God would “hear in heaven.”
You are the most holy God of gods; you are faithful even when we are unfaithful. There is no god like you in heaven above or earth below. You are a promise keeper and the giver of life and godliness to Your people. So, Father, “hear in heaven” this plea of your servant: that others would come to know You and seek to serve you. We confess that we have sinned and are astray from Your way, but You promise to “hear in heaven” and forgive. We need wise leaders to guide us, so please “hear in heaven” and raise godly leaders.
Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, kingdom come and will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory forever. Amen.
Amen and amen.
