Prayer Request & Praise Reports!
Read 2 Chronicles 7:1 through 9:31
Solomon was a man of prayer, deep faith, and renowned wisdom. During the twenty years of the temple and palace construction (2 Chronicles 8:1), he constantly asked God to make the temple His dwelling place. When the work was completed, God answered:
“I have heard your prayer and have chosen this place for myself as a temple for sacrifices.... If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land” (2Chronicles 7:12,14).
It seems God took a long time to respond to Solomon’s prayer. How often do we want immediate answers or wonder if God has heard us? God made it clear He would answer prayer if people humble themselves before Him and turn away from their sins. Our broken world needs prayer more than ever. Let us humble ourselves, turn from our sins, ask for forgiveness, and believe God will answer.
Challenge for Today: Kneel humbly before God and ask Him to bless you and heal our world.

Prayer is our link with God, an awesome avenue through which we can express praise and adoration to Him for His goodness, love, and mercy; and an avenue through which we can voice our petitions and concerns. God's Word assures us that we can "come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
Prayer also moves the hand of God on behalf of needs and circumstances in our church, our families, our community, nation, and world. Take time to pray and intercede for these areas as God leads you. Become part of a prayer group and intercede with others in times of corporate prayer. As you seek God's help, expect reports of great victory to follow as God answers prayer.
