1 Timothy 2:1-2. On Behalf of All Men.
We pray for all those who are in authority so we may lead a tranquil, godly life. We do this not only for ourselves, but on behalf of all. Even those who are not praying or seeking God themselves, will benefit from our prayers. We urge everyone to pray as this Scripture calls us to do. Gather your family, your children, your prayer group or friends and let's call out to the Lord together on behalf of all this week.
"First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity."
