Message of the Day: Prayers Should Be Made For Bad As Well As For Good Leaders!

Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time..” (1 Timothy 2:1-6, NKJV)

At the time of the writing of this Epistle, Nero was ruler of the Roman Empire. Under him, Paul had been imprisoned and was soon to be executed.

In the first chapter of 1 Timothy, Paul talked about teachers who were narrow in their outlook and pray only for those of their own group. We Christians, should avoid such selfishness. We should pray for all rulers without distinction, for prayers should be made for bad as well as for good leaders.

Since Christ – the only Mediator between God and men – died for all, it is proper to pray for all, and the fact that he died for all is a proof that God desired the salvation of all.
