Shaping Israelite Identity through Prayers in the Book of Chronicles

Solomon's Appeal to God: Israel as Active Supplicants Solomon's prayer describes the king as an active supplicant. The text characterizes the king as a model, and this portrayal could persuade the audience to imitate this king.

What is the post-exilic Israelites’ destiny? What should they have hoped for? How could they actualize their desired community? This book discusses the identity of the post-exilic Israelite community by focusing on the unique rhetorical impetus in the book of Chronicles. Chronicles suggests a picture of the desired future Israel. Yet, the Chronicler does not call for a new identity, creation ex nihilo, from the community but calls for the restoration of the Israelites’ past identity by reporting the history of Israel and Judah. The restoration of their past identity can be actualized when members of the community fulfill portrayed roles and characteristics in Chronicles: worshiping, monotheistic believing, and praying, and Davidic citizenship. Further, recorded prayer plays a crucial role as Chronicles persuades its readers to render or exhibit those roles and characteristics. Prayer invites the community members to participate so that they transform past prayers into their own prayers. By doing so, the prayer participants perceive portrayed roles and characteristics and change their attitude. By rendering and exhibiting desired roles and characteristics, they eventually hope for and actualize a better community, the liturgical community.

In this volume Michael D. Matlock analyses five lengthy biblical prose prayers from the exilic and post-exilic period: Solomon's prayer (1 Kings 8.14-61), Ezra's prayer (Ezra 9.5-15), Nehemiah's prayer (Nehemiah 1.4-11), the Levites' prayer (Nehemiah 9.4-37), and the prayer of Daniel (Daniel 9:3-19). He also examines prayers from Second Temple literature including texts from the Apocrypha and Pseudepigrapha, the writings of Philo and Josephus and texts from Qumran, and discusses the Septuagintal versions of the five biblical prayers and Targum Jonathan's treatment of Solomon's prayer. He offers a new English translation of each prayer, examines the prayers' rhetorical characteristics, and demonstrates how each prayer draws upon and reinterprets traditional images and materials. Matlock describes how each prayer relates to its larger narrative context and examines its functions within that context. Finally, he appraises the various similarities and differences in these prayers in terms of their different contexts in the Second Commonwealth period noting particular theologies and ideologies.

Does God Answer Your Prayers

A major part of Solomon's prayer is for the forgiveness of sin. Solomon understood that human by nature sin over and over, even after being punished by God. Sometimes, it is famine, drought, war, and enemy capture.

Does God answer prayers? If he does, what is the timing? What prayers does God answer? Does God answer according to our expectation or differently? How important is God's will in answering prayers? This book answers to those questions and explains how important and essential praying daily is to grow and continue our relationship with God. It contains the prayers of many of the biblical men and women and the principles we can learn from them. Also, this book explains the purpose and reasons behind prayer and why it is important in our lives on earth. It explains how prayer helps us move closer to God and spiritually grow and stay in faith with God. This book explains how God was moved by the prayers of his servants and his children in difficult circumstances. It also proves that our God is a prayer-answering God. Also, this book provides information from the prayers of the apostles and church fathers, including St. Paul, St. Augustine, and Martin Luther, the reformer of the church. This book explains the different types of prayers. There is also a chapter on our Lord's Prayer and how he taught us to pray. How can prayer change things, move the hand of God, change a person's life, move mountains blocking the path to success in our lives, and solve life's problems? God's blessings and wonders by prayers are all discussed in this book.

From the BookMeet three who discovered the power of “breakthrough prayer.”“My husband and I had a dream of helping desperate young women. But no banker in his right mind would finance such a venture. So we prayed and God broke through every single obstacle we faced. That was just the beginning of the wonderful roller-coaster ride we call ‘faith.’”—Grace (chapter 7)“Voices inside my head were constantly screaming at me. I became like an animal in the street, muttering or yelling out a stream of profanity as people passed by. One day I screamed out, Jesus, help me! O God, you’re my only hope! That was the breakthrough prayer that saved my life.”—Danny (chapter 2)“Talk about breakthrough prayer! I was buried under 110 stories of steel and concrete after the collapse of the World Trade Center Towers when God heard my cry for help.”—Genelle (chapter 3)

And there's many examples in the Bible were godly people prayed. They lifted themselves to God, over family, the church, the believers, and wider still. They prayed as if something was going to happen. Each one had a prayer. Prayer is important because if we don't pray, nothing will happen. Every soul that comes to Jesus in repentance and faith will be given the Holy Spirit to guide you into the truth. He will explain how to pray, he will act as your conscience until you pass from this life. God expects that studying the Bible, goes from God to you. You respond to God, by praying every day. My book is taken from the prayers in the Bible, and is a study book. You can look through it and add your own prayers. The reason is that all of the Bible contain prayers, many prayers. I think you would do well to study them.

Uri Ehrlich addresses a relatively neglected but central component of the act of prayer: its nonverbal aspects, represented by such features as the worshiper's gestures, attire and shoes, and vocal expression. In the first part of this book, the author engages in a two-tiered examination of nine nonverbal elements integral to the rabbinic Amidah prayer: a detailed historical-geographical consideration of their development, followed by an analysis of each gesture's signification, the crux of this study. The concluding chapters explore the broader rabbinic conception of prayer embodied in these nonverbal modes of expression. Unlike mainstream prayer studies, which concentrate on the textual and spoken facets of prayer, the holistic approach taken here views prayer as a complex of verbal, physical, spiritual and other attributes.
