1 Timothy 2:2 – Do you pray for your leaders?

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.”

Observations:

  • 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.

When was the last time you prayed for your leaders?  Stop for a few minutes and approach the throne of Grace for your leaders.
