Read the Bible in a year by reading First Timothy 2 today. Anything comprised of people, often needs extra help. Governments are people. That means they are like you and me. Do you ever need help? Do you appreciate it when people pray for you? Well, do the same for the government. Paul said that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks should be made “for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1Timothy 2:2). Do you want a quiet and peaceable life? Okay, you just read what Paul said to do. Are you doing it? If not, make a commitment to start doing it regularly.
