At the dedication of the temple, King Solomon prays, and when King Solomon prayed to GOD, he said, “When THY people ISRAEL be smitten down before the enemy, because they have sinned against THEE, and shall turn again to THEE, and confess THY name, and pray, and make supplication unto THEE in this house: Then hear THOU in Heaven, and forgive the sin of THY people Israel, and bring them again unto the land which THOU gave unto their fathers.
“When Heaven is shut up, and there is no rain, because they have sinned against THEE; if they pray toward this place [Solomon’s temple], and confess THY name, and turn from their sin, when YOU afflict them: Then hear THOU in Heaven, and forgive the sin of YOUR servants, and of YOUR people Israel, that YOU teach them the good way wherein they should walk, and give rain upon THY land, which YOU have given to YOUR people for an inheritance. If there be in the land famine, if there be pestilence [sickness, disease], blasting, mildew, locust, or if there be caterpillar; if their enemy besiege them in the land of their cities; whatsoever plague, whatsoever sickness there be; What prayer and supplication theresoever be made by any man, or by all THY people Israel, which shall know every man the plague of his own heart, and spread forth his hands toward this house: Then hear THOU in Heaven THY dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart YOU know; (for YOU, even YOU only, know the hearts of all the children of men;) That they may fear THEE all the days that they live in the land YOU gave unto our fathers.
“Moreover concerning a stranger, that is not of THY people Israel, but comes out of a far country for THY name's sake; (For they shall hear of THY great name, and of THY strong hand, and of THY stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray toward this house [the temple]; Hear THOU in heaven THY dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to THEE for: that all people of the earth may know THY name, to fear THEE, as do THY people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by THY NAME.
“If THY people go out to battle against their enemy, whithersoever THOU shalt send them, and shall pray unto the LORD toward the city which THOU hast chosen, and toward the house that I have built for THY NAME: Then hear THOU in Heaven their prayer and their supplication, and maintain their cause. If they sin against THEE, (for there is no man [at that time] that sinneth not [After we are saved, we walk in the SPIRIT and do not sin.]), and THOU be angry with them, and deliver them to the enemy, so that they carry them away captives unto the land of the enemy, far or near; Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto THEE in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto THEE with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto THEE toward their land, which THOU gavest unto their fathers, the city which THOU hast chosen, and the house which I have built for THY name: Then hear THOU their prayer and their supplication in Heaven THY dwelling place, and maintain their cause, And forgive THY people that have sinned against THEE, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against THEE, and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them: For they be THY people, and THINE inheritance, which THOU brought out of Egypt, from the midst of the furnace of iron: That THINE eyes may be open unto the supplication of THY servant, and unto the supplication of THY people Israel, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto THEE. For THOU did separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be THINE inheritance, as THOU spake by the hand of Moses THY servant, when YOU brought our fathers out of Egypt, O LORD GOD.
“And it was so, that when Solomon had made an end of praying all this prayer and supplication unto the LORD, he arose from before the altar of the LORD, from kneeling on his knees with his hands spread up to heaven” (1 Kings 8:33-54).
I believe if Solomon were here today, he would encourage everyone to pray this way daily, because many signs of the times show us that the return of CHRIST is near,1 and this is not time to fall away with those who have made up their minds to go to Hell and the Lake of Fire to be tormented with torments forever and ever.2 Keep yourself in prayer and in the Bible.3
If you don’t know CHRIST, if you haven’t been born again yet, then begin now by saying this prayer:
My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11
Now that you are saved, serve GOD with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength (Mark 12:30). Be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, the SON, and the HOLY SPIRIT (Mark 12:30).12 Diligently study the King James Version of the Bible, and do what it says until the day you die.13
Then, as JESUS commands, be a soul-winner. You can do this by becoming a distributor of Pastor Alamo’s literature. We print Pastor Alamo’s literature in many languages, and we ship them all over the world free of charge. We spend millions of dollars on paper and shipping, so we need your prayers and financial help. If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will you rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
