Question 3

  1kgs  8: 22 – 53

  • Outline Solomon’s prayer during the dedication of the Temple at Jerusalem.
  •  State three lessons Church Leaders derived from the prayer.

This question on Solomon’s prayer was not satisfactorily answered by most of the candidates who attempted it.  The question just required the candidates to write on the prayers of Solomon during the dedication of the temple.  They failed to state that:

  • Solomon worshipped and praised the Lord.
  • He asked for the forgiveness of his sins and those of his subjects.
  • He prayed for their neighbours, for strangers and even for their enemies.
  • He also prayed against war, famine, sin, drought and captivity.
  • And that any time they sin and repent God should forgive and answer them.

In all, the question was able to fetch the candidates average marks as majority of them muddled up the points.
