O Lord my God,
you have made your servant king in place of my father David.
But I am only a little child and do not know how to carry out my duties.
I am here among the people you have chosen,
a great people, too numerous to count or number.
So give me a discerning heart to govern your people
and to distinguish between right and wrong.
For who is able to govern this great people of yours?
– 1 Kings 4:7-9 New International Version
