Solomon prays for wisdom

  • 10It was pleasing in the sight of the Lord that Solomon had asked this thing. 11 God said to him, “Because you have asked this thing & have not asked for yourself long life, nor have asked riches for yourself, nor have you asked for the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself discernment to understand justice, 12 behold, I have done according to your words.


Solomon prays for wisdom

  • Behold, I have given you a wise & discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you. 13I have also given you what you have not asked, both riches & honor, so that there will not be any among the kings like you all your days. 14 If you walk in My ways, keeping My statutes & commandments, as your father David walked, then I will prolong your days.”

  • Closing:

  • After you have prayed to God for wisdom, and later find that you have also received material blessings from Him, don’t forget to hold on to the humility of mind and trust you had in Him at the beginning.
