Solomon felt blessed to be king, but he didn’t feel qualified to lead God’s people. When given the opportunity to ask God for anything, Solomon asked for the ability to lead God’s people well so God would be glorified.
Pleased with Solomon’s humble request, God gave him what he asked for and a lot more to show others how pleased he was with Solomon’s attitude, humility, and desire to honor Him.
What do your prayers reveal about your heart and attitude before God? Do your prayers inspire God to bless you as God chose to bless Solomon?
Thank God for the opportunity to honor Him with your prayer requests.
