Meditate on 1 Timothy 2:1-2 before and after the 2016 Election

The Domain for Truth


1 Timothy 2:1-2 states

First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men,for kings and all who are in [a]authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and [b]dignity

I think there’s room for discussion about the election among Christians.  I know there’s disagreements for this election.  But believers can unite in one thing: praying for those who are in authority and also who will be in authority.  1 Timothy 2 also reveal precisely why we pray for those in authority has to do with our walks with God (v.2).  It is so that we live a life in all godliness.  But that presupposes we are striving towards godliness and dignity.  Brothers and sisters are you?
