TOPIC: LET YOUR HEART BE RIGHT WITH GOD. TEXT: 1 KINGS 8 : 31 - 40 Today's passage very directly emphasizes the seed for our hearts to be right with God when we pray. King Solomon listed a number of things that could go wrong which the people of Israel would seek God's intervention through prayer. But then in verse 39, he asked God to deal with each man according to all he does, since God knows the hearts of all men. People are praying all over the world, but not all prayers would be answered or even be heard by God. Psalms 66:18 says, "If I had cherished sin in my heart the Lord would not have listened." God would only listen to and answer the prayers of people whose hearts are right with Him.
QUESTION Is your heart right with God? PRAYER Oh God, make my heart right with You, in Jesus name, Amen.
