Bible: 1 Kings 8:22-26

Solomon Prays for Israel

8:22 Solomon stood before the altar of the Lord in front of the entire assembly of Israel and spread out his hands toward the sky. 1  8:23 He prayed: 2  “O Lord, God of Israel, there is no god like you in heaven above or on earth below! You maintain covenantal loyalty 3  to your servants who obey you with sincerity. 4  8:24 You have kept your word to your servant, my father David; 5  this very day you have fulfilled what you promised. 6  8:25 Now, O Lord, God of Israel, keep the promise you made to your servant, my father David, when you said, ‘You will never fail to have a successor ruling before me on the throne of Israel, 7  provided that your descendants watch their step and serve me as you have done.’ 8  8:26 Now, O God of Israel, may the promise you made 9  to your servant, my father David, be realized. 10
