Opening Prayer: Almighty God, thank you for making a way for us to interact with You. Help me to take advantage of the means You have provided for coming into Your presence. Amen.

Read: 1 Kings 6
Reflect: Why do you think it was important to record so much detailed information about the Temple? How do these details add to the richness of scripture?

Hymn: Come, Thou Almighty King
Come, Thou Almighty King,
Help us Thy name to sing.
Help us to praise.
Father all glorious,
O’er all victorious,
Come and reign over us,
Ancient of Days.

Come, Thou Incarnate Word,
Gird on Thy mighty sword.
Our prayer attend.
Come, and Thy people bless,
And give Thy word success.
Spirit of holiness,
On us descend.

Come, Holy Comforter,
Thy sacred witness bear
In this glad hour.
Thou, who almighty art,
Now rule in every heart
And ne’er from us depart,
Spirit of power.

To Thee, great One in Three,
Eternal praises be
Hence evermore.
Thy sovereign majesty
May we in glory see,
And to eternity
Love and adore.

Closing Prayer: Hear the supplication of your servant and of your people Israel when they pray toward this place. Hear from heaven, your dwelling place, and when you hear, forgive. (1 Kings 8:30)
