“Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?”
—1 Kings 3:9
Imagine if God came to you and said, “I will give you whatever you want. Just ask for it.” What would you pray for?
This actually happened to Solomon when he was a very young man. He had ascended the throne to rule over Israel after his father David was gone. One night God appeared to him in a dream and said, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!” (1 Kings 3:5 NLT).
Solomon asked for wisdom to rule God’s people.
