A Wise Prayer

Today we are taking time to pray for revival at our church. It has been fun explaining the concept of revival to the teens. I look forward to telling them a little about the history of revival and the influence that young people have had upon it.

As I was reading my devotions this morning I came accross a prayer by Solomon in my reading of I Kings 8. Solomon was the wisest man to ever live so it would probably not hurt us to take note of his prayer requests.

Solomon had 5 basic prayer requests when he prayed to God in this chapter:

  1. For God’s presence (v.57)
  2. For the desire to do God’s will in everything. (v.58)
  3. For the desire and ability to obey God’s laws and commandments. (v58)
  4. Help with daily needs (v.59)
  5. For the spread of God’s kingdom to the entire world. (v.60)
