1FIRST OF all, then, I admonish and urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be offered on behalf of all men,
2For kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] we may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way.
3For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God our Savior,
4Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.
5For there [is only] one God, and [only] one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus,
Pray for our country, its leaders to listen to the Holy Spirit, for godly men to be placed in authority. Pray for protection for our armed forces as we are in a season of heightened watch against terrorist activities. Pray for Israel that she is protected in these same ways. That her people know they are not alone that WE do stand beside Israel. As Christians God made us stewards of the nation He gave us. It's time to renew our minds to that truth and get involved again in the shaping of America.
Love and Blessings
