(1 Tim 2:1-4,8) I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for
all people- 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness
and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come
to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands
without anger or disputing.
