Message of the Day: Pray Without Distinction!

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.” (1 Timothy 2:1-2, NKJV)

At the time Paul wrote this letter, the notorious Nero was emperor of the Roman Empire. Under him, Paul had been imprisoned and was soon to be executed.

Teachers of the kind Paul has describes in the previous chapter are usually narrow in their outlook and pray only for those of their own group. Christians should avoid such selfishness. They should pray for all without distinction, for God wants all to be saved.

Whether the civil rulers be good or bad, prayer for them is our positive duty; and the answer to our prayers, in either ease, will be the means of our being enabled to lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. Godliness here implies a good and holy life, with special emphasis on its source, a deep reverence for God.
