1 Timothy 2:2 – Prayer and Politics

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we read through the New Testament.

Context: Paul has just said, “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people…”

1 Timothy 2:2 “…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: We should pray for all “all people” (v.1) and specifically those in high positions.  Though we don’t have a king in our country, we do have a president.  Paul says we should pray that they would “lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”

Application: I am challenged to begin this morning praying for those who are leading in my church, my office, my community, and my country.  During the presidential debate today, I want to pray that our current and future president will “lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.”

Will you pray with me for our leaders?
