The CWG Prayer Chain Post is a weekly post for members to include their special intentions by adding a comment.
1 Kings 3:5, 7-12
The LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream at night. God said, “Ask something of me and I will give it to you.” Solomon answered: “O LORD, my God, you have made me, your servant, king to succeed my father David; but I am a mere youth, not knowing at all how to act. I serve you in the midst of the people whom you have chosen, a people so vast that it cannot be numbered or counted. Give your servant, therefore, an understanding heart to judge your people and to distinguish right from wrong. For who is able to govern this vast people of yours?”
The LORD was pleased that Solomon made this request. So God said to him: “Because you have asked for this—not for a long life for yourself, nor for riches, nor for the life of your enemies, but for understanding so that you may know what is right—I do as you requested. I give you a heart so wise and understanding that there has never been anyone like you up to now, and after you there will come no one to equal you.”
The power of prayer and the power of people praying.
JULY INTENTION PRAYER (from Psalms 103)
Bless the Lord, my soul, from the depths of my being, his holy name;
bless the Lord, my soul, never forget all his acts of kindness.
He forgives all your offenses, cures all your diseases, he redeems your life from the abyss, crowns you with faithful love and tenderness; The Lord is tenderness and pity, slow to anger and rich in faithful love; his indignation does not last for ever, nor his resentment remains for all time; he does not treat us as our sins deserve, nor repay us as befits our offenses. As the height of heaven above earth, so strong is his faithful love for those who fear him.
