Today we are taking time to pray for revival at our church. It has been fun explaining the concept of revival to the teens. I look forward to telling them a little about the history of revival and the influence that young people have had upon it.
As I was reading my devotions this morning I came accross a prayer by Solomon in my reading of I Kings 8. Solomon was the wisest man to ever live so it would probably not hurt us to take note of his prayer requests.
Solomon had 5 basic prayer requests when he prayed to God in this chapter:
- For God’s presence (v.57)
- For the desire to do God’s will in everything. (v.58)
- For the desire and ability to obey God’s laws and commandments. (v58)
- Help with daily needs (v.59)
- For the spread of God’s kingdom to the entire world. (v.60)
