Praying Through the Bible #18 | with Daniel Whyte III

TEXT: I Kings 8:41-43

This is message #18 titled “Great Expectations” (Part 5). We are continuing our series on Solomon’s prayer at the dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem. We have seen how God fulfilled His promise to David and allowed his son, Solomon, to build the Temple for the glory of God. After the Temple was built, Solomon called together all of the children of Israel to celebrate the completion of the Temple and that is the occasion on which Solomon offers his prayer.

Today, we will continue reading Solomon’s prayer and look at three more elements that we can draw from it and apply to our own prayer life.

1. Notice how Solomon prays for those who are not a part of the nation of Israel.

2. Notice how Solomon is concerned about God’s glory.

3. Notice how Solomon’s purpose in praying is for all people to be obedient to God.
