In II Chronicles 6:1-18 Solomon stood and then knelt down before the whole assembly of Israel with his hands raised toward heaven.

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord, Solomon demonstrated reverence toward You by standing and then kneeling before You. 

Something to think about

Standing or kneeling before God are acts of reverence.  They let others see God is being honored. 

Something to experience

When we stand or kneel before the Lord may these actions be more than just tradition.  May they indicated our love for God.

************************

In II Chronicles 6:19-42 Solomon led the Israelites in prayer.  He asked God to hear their prayers.

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord, Solomon prayed about a variety of concerns.

Something to think about

Solomon prayed about (1) crime (2) enemy attacks (3) drought (4) famine (5) the influx of foreigners (6) war and (7) sin.

Something to experience

God is concerned about everything we are going through.  Even the negative consequences we bring on ourselves.  We need to turn to Him and believe He is listening and will answer.

*************************

In II Chronicles 6:30 Solomon asked God to forgive, and deal with each man according to all each would do.  For God alone knows the heart of man.

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord, only You know what’s in the heart of man.

Something to think about

Solomon, in his prayer, emphasized the fact that God stood ready to hear His people, to forgive their sins and to restore His relationship with them.

Something to experience

God is waiting and listening for us to come to Him and repent, be forgiven and restored too.

Prayer

Lord I pray we will come to You (Matthew 11:28 AMP).  I pray we will pour out our needs and problems to You (Matthew 7:7 AMP).  For You are always ready to forgive us and restore us to a right relationship with You (II Corinthians 5:21 AMP).  In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.
