Daily Bible Reading (Tuesday, September 26th)


1 Timothy 2 (ESV)


Pray for All People

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. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man[a] Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time. For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying), a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling; likewise also that women should adorn themselves in respectable apparel, with modesty and self-control, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly attire, 10 but with what is proper for women who profess godliness—with good works. 11 Let a woman learn quietly with all submissiveness.12 I do not permit a woman to teach or to exercise authority over a man; rather, she is to remain quiet. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve; 14 and Adam was not deceived, but the woman was deceived and became a transgressor. 15 Yet she will be saved through childbearing—if they continue in faith and love and holiness, with self-control.


  1. 1 Timothy 2:5 men and man render the same Greek word that is translated people in verses 1 and 4


Prayer is such a powerful weapon, shield, and yes, even a tent where we can enter into private conversations with the one who is over ALL things!

I hear my brothers and sisters complaining about politics our government, etc. What is God's instruction concerning these matters? Pray for these officials that they come under the conviction of sin and the reality that they are servants appointed by God to minister justice. I am not overly concerned about my (our) personal comfort, but I do know that it pleasing to Our God whose good will is to save sinners.

Wow! Verses 1-6. Thanking the Lord for the apostle Paul. Praying for the continuation of faith, love and holiness, with self-control.
