Temple Prayers

Read 2 Chronicles 6:1 through 9:31

Solomon prayed:


“Hear from heaven where you live, and grant what [foreigners] ask of you. In this way, all the people of the earth will come to know and fear you, just as your own people Israel do. They, too, will know that this Temple I have built honors your name” 


(2 Chronicles 6:33).


At the dedication celebration, Solomon interceded for Israel and for all who would seek God’s favor. This prayer included Gentiles who would come to this holy temple to pray. 

Covered with an overlay of gold, the temple was a magnificent structure. Passing between the huge columns, the worshipper entered a golden room decorated with fine carvings and jewels. 


Heaven’s throne room is even more awe-inspiring. People are invited to enter it at any time and meet with the Lord of the universe. Bring praise and petitions before Him. He is always ready to receive you.


Challenge for Today: Visualize God’s sanctuary as you pray.
