Prayers for Nations and 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.(1 Timothy 2:1-4|KJV-
Dearly beloved in Christ, the scriptures has moved us to understand the reason why prayers, supplications and Thanksgiving should be made for all men especially those in authority. Let us therefore lift our voice to the King of kings and Lord of lords as we commend our nations and leaders unto Him.
