TEXT: 1 Kings 8: 22-53(NKJV)

Anglican Daily Fountain 26 May 2023 STUDY:

King Solomon gave his time and attention to prayer during the dedication of the temple. He employed the “ACTS” of prayers: Adoration, Confession of sins, Thanksgiving and Supplication. He began by adoring God (vv. 23-24) as a God above all other gods who also keeps covenants with those who are faithful to him. It is necessary that we approach God first with worship and thanksgiving. Unfortunately, some Christians prefer to spend very little time in this area.

Verse 27 expresses the humility of King Solomon who did not consider the magnificent temple he built as something to boast about. He rather saw it as nothing compared to the heavens which cannot even contain God. How do you see yourself before God when you have achieved a great feat?

The content of his supplication to God was overwhelming, touching every aspect of his nation. Most important was his request for God’s presence in the temple, to hear people when they pray. Other points he raised in his prayer request were: Justice for the people, forgiveness when they sin and come back confessing, God’s intervention in times of wars, famine, and plague, etc. Brethren, let us earnestly pray for the presence of the Lord to dwell in our personal lives and the Church. Pray for our nation like King Solomon did.

PRAYER: Grant us the burden to pray, Oh Lord!
