Prayers for those in Authority
I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. … I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. (1 Timothy 2:1-4,8|KJV-
