today's reading.
2 Chronicles 6:12-42    Then Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in the presence of all the assembly of Israel and spread out his hands...

Solomon gets the privilege of building "the house of the Lord." He constructs the temple in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah, and he spares no expense. It is built exquisitely. When completed, Solomon calls the people together for a dedication ceremony, and at 2 Chronicles 6:12-42 we see Solomon's prayer of dedication.

Solomon is a powerful, wise, and extremely wealthy king. Yet his prayer reveals a heart that is completely submitted to God. Over and over Solomon recognizes God's authority and then humbly asks God to hear the people's prayers and forgive them of their sins. 

So what did you learn about praying from Solomon's dedication prayer? What was the thing that stood out to you the most about his prayer, and why? Tami W.
