I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. – 1Timothy 2:1-6
Why is it important to pray for our Nation? That we may live peaceful lives? YES! But, that isn’t all its about. It’s so that all people can come to salvation and the knowledge of truth. What’s on the line isn’t just a peaceful existence, it’s the salvation of your neighbors and friends and family! PRAY for our NATION and all those in AUTHORITY. If your concerned about your co-works salvation, then pray the people in authority over their life, the people they look up too, are wise and come to salvation too.
