Opening Roles Of
Wisdom And Discernment, The
Opening roles of prayer One night while Solomon was in Gibeon, the Lord God appeared to him in a dream and said, "Solomon, ask for anything you want, and I will give it to you. "Solomon answered: My father David, your servant, was honest and did what you commanded. You were always loyal to him, and you gave him a son who is now king.
Lord God, Im your servant, and youve made me king in my fathers place.
But Im very young and know so little about being a leader.
And now I must rule your chosen people, even though there are too many of them to count. Please make me wise and teach me the difference between right and wrong. Then I will know how to rule your people.
If you dont, there is no way I could rule this great nation of yours. God said: Solomon, Im pleased that you asked for this. You could have asked to live a long time or to be rich. Or you could have asked for your enemies to be destroyed. Instead, you asked for wisdom to make right decisions.
So Ill make you wiser than anyone who has ever lived or ever will live.
Ill also give you what you didnt ask for. Youll be rich and respected as long as you live, and youll be greater than any other king. If you obey me and follow my commands, as your father David did, Ill let you live a long time. Opening role
