Bible Quotes Nov 8th 1 Timothy 2:1-2

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.” 1 Timothy 2:1-2

A useful bible quote considering the time of year is election time in the United States. However, Paul arguably writing this to Timothy in Ephesus is part of a prayer for all. Paul had been to Ephesus twice, as listed in Acts, and had left Timothy in charge. Because of wording employed in the letters, researchers argue it was not written by Paul to Timothy but by a later Christian to Ephesus, As Paul to Timothy. 

It is good to pray for those in authority to be excellent servants of God. In terms of execution of office outcomes, those serving God are more reliable than those serving themselves.
