Some time back I found yet another example. Look at 2 Chronicles 6:40. Consider the requests that Solomon makes:
- Let your eyes be open
- Let your ears be attentive
Solomon approached God asking Him to engage, to listen, to see. We know from Scripture that we cannot give God information. He knows, He hears, He sees. Solomon, asking this, acknowledges both the Lord’s authority and Solomon’s dependence and submission to Him.
Seems like a good way to start our own prayer.
