1 Timothy 2:1 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity.3 This is good and pleases God our Savior,4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth.
Have you prayed for those that are "over" you today...your boss, our President, those who are making decisions on your behalf? We are encouraged to pray for ALL people and for those in authority so that WE can live peaceful and quiet lives. So how should I pray? Look closely at the first verse...
1-ask God to help them
2-intercede on their behalf
3-give thanks for them
Most days I get so busy worrying about me that I neglect praying for others. I have to slow myself down and remind myself what is most important. Today, take a few moments to pray like this for ALL the people you are associated with and those in authority over you. This pleases God and you'll feel pretty good about it too! I'll be praying for YOU!
