Praying Through the Bible #16 | with Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: I Kings 8:30-36

This is message #16 titled “Great Expectations” (Part 3). We are continuing our discussion of Solomon’s prayer at the dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem. We have already seen how God fulfilled His promise to David and allowed his son, Solomon, to build the Temple for the glory of God.

Today, we will continue reading Solomon’s prayer and look at three more lessons that we can draw from it and apply to our own prayer life. From verses 30-36, I want us to notice three things.

1. Solomon acknowledges human frailty.

2. Solomon asks for deliverance from enemies.

3. Solomon asks God to teach his people how to walk righteously.
