1 Timothy 2:1-4

1 I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and givings of thanks, be made for all men:  2 for kings and all who are in high places; that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and reverence.  3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior;  4 who desires all people to be saved and come to full knowledge of the truth.
