Solomon’s Prayer of Dedication

I have a few favorite prayers in the Bible and Solomon’s prayer of dedication of the Temple is one of them.  There’s a lovely thread of repentance, love, and forgiveness woven throughout.  The trust in God permeating this prayer is an unshakable trust in a covenant-keeping God.  As you read through this prayer in 1 Kings 8:22-61, focus on the characteristics of God and how God’s people will overcome, in part by maintaining a clear view of sin and repentance.  Repentance is characterized by a change of heart, mind, attitude, and direction.  This is how we overcome.
