Scripture

1 Timothy 2:1-4

[1] I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--[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 men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
