Today’s Readings: Jeremiah 30:1‐31:26, 1 Timothy 2:1‐15, Psalm 87:1‐7, Proverbs 25:18‐19
Context: After a length introduction, warning the Timothy against false teachers and sharing how God has shown him grace, Paul starts the instructions to Timothy at the beginning of chapter 2.
1 Timothy 2:1-2 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”
- Pray that all who are in high positions:
- Lead a peaceful and quiet life
- Lead a Godly life
- Live dignified in every way
Apply: The Lord prompted me to stop and prayed these things over the leaders in my ministry, my church, and our country.
