Passage

I Timothy 2:1-6

I urge , then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings and all those in authority, that we may lead peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and mankind,  the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.  (I Timothy 2:1-6)
