The Senate Judiciary Committee votes on the Gorsuch nomination April 3 and the full Senate on April 7.
1 Kings 3:9-10 (NLT)
“Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?”
The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for wisdom.
Song of Solomon 3:11 (ESV)
Go out, O daughters of Zion,
and look upon King Solomon,
with the crown with which his mother crowned him
on the day of his wedding,
on the day of the gladness of his heart.
Our Father in heaven,
We bless Your holy name and recall all of Your benefits. You work righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed. You show compassion to those who fear You. You know our frame and remember that we are dust.
You made known Your ways to Moses and Your acts to the people of Israel. You granted King Solomon an understanding heart and great wisdom. If there are any descendants of King Solomon in the U.S. Senate, we lift them up to You and say, “Give them understanding hearts so that they can govern the United States of America well and know the difference between right and wrong.”
Remember Your love for King Solomon and his descendants. Forgive their sins, heal their diseases, redeem them from death, and crown them with tender mercies. Guide their footsteps, their encounters, and their votes in the upcoming Gorsuch confirmation hearing. A crown of tender mercies for Solomon’s descendants, Lord. A crown of tender mercies. Amen.
