Prayed.

We’ve had the privilege to pray for This Family.  May God receive glory and “many will see and fear and will trust in the Lord” because of how this family lives.

James 1:5

5But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.

James 3:17

17But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy.

1 Kings 3:9-28

9“So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?”

God’s Answer

10It was pleasing in the sight of the Lord that Solomon had asked this thing.

11God said to him, “Because you have asked this thing and 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,

12behold, I have done according to your words Behold, I have given you a wise and discerning heart, so that there has been no one like you before you, nor shall one like you arise after you.

13“I have also given you what you have not asked, both riches and 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 and commandments, as your father David walked, then I will prolong your days.”

15Then Solomon awoke, and behold, it was a dream And he came to Jerusalem and stood before the ark of the covenant of the Lord, and offered burnt offerings and made peace offerings, and made a feast for all his servants.

Verse 28,

When all Israel heard of the judgment which the king had handed down, they feared the king, for they saw that the wisdom of God was in him to administer justice.
