John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 8:36

Good way — The way, of their duty, which is good in itself; and both delightful and profitable, to those that walk in it. Give rain — The order of Solomon's prayer is very observable; first and chiefly, he prays for their repentance and forgiveness, which is the chief blessing, and the only solid foundation of all other mercies: and then he prays for temporal mercies; thereby teaching us what to desire principally in our prayers; which also Christ hath taught us in his perfect prayer; wherein there is but one petition for outward, and all the rest are for spiritual blessings.
