I think that God asking Solomon what he wishes for is an interesting story. Nowhere else in the Bible, that I know of, has God telling someone "ask what I shall give thee" (1 Kings 3:5). Solomon could have asked for power, riches, or a long life. But instead he asks for wisdom!
1 Kings 3:9.
I don't know about anyone else, but I would have been tempted to request something for myself. I am a selfish person, if I want to be honest. I just hope that if God ever gives me the opportunity to ask Him for something, I will be able to ask for love or wisdom or patience. I already ask for those things but I struggle every day to be like God.
