Bible: 1 Timothy 2:1-7

Prayer for All People

2:1 First of all, then, I urge that requests, 1  prayers, intercessions, and thanks be offered on behalf of all people, 2  2:2 even for kings 3  and all who are in authority, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 2:3 Such prayer for all 4  is good and welcomed before God our Savior, 2:4 since he wants 5  all people 6  to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 2:5 For there is one God and one intermediary 7  between God and humanity, Christ Jesus, himself human, 8  2:6 who gave himself as a ransom for all, revealing God’s purpose at his appointed time. 9  2:7 For this I was appointed a preacher and apostle – I am telling the truth; 10  I am not lying – and a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
