King Solomon’s prayer in the time of war (2 Chr 6:34-6:35)

“If your people go out to battle against their enemies,

By whatever way you shall send them,

And they pray to Yahweh

Toward the city that you have chosen

And the house that I have built for your name,

Then hear from heaven their prayer and their plea.

Maintain their cause.”

This prayer is word for word like the prayer in 1 Kings, chapter 8. Whenever and however the Israelites went out to do battle, no matter what kind of way, then any prayer to Yahweh from the Temple and the city of Jerusalem should be heard in heaven. This pray asks Yahweh to maintain his people as they go out to battle.
