1st Timothy 1-2, 8—by Carl Gooch

Carl’s Thoughts on:1 Timothy 1-2, 8

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling.


This is on my mind this morning. I wonder how many do pray for those who have been place in authority.  I’m not only speaking of governors, senators and the President but others as well. Teachers, elders, preachers and such are also in need of our prayers. I find myself somewhat lacking in doing this. I seem to get caught up in my little world and forget that it’s not all about my wants and needs. Oh I prayer for my church, the elders, pastor and their wives in general. But sometimes they need a little more. If I know of an area that they may be struggling with I should prayer about that specific issue as well.There is so much that needs to taken to God in prayer. We need to remember who our source truly is, who is in control, which can make a change. I know prayer works; I’ve seen it so many times in my life, yet I sometime pray quick and selfishly. And still God is faithful and hears my prayers when I come humbly back to Him.
