I desire therefore, first of all, that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgivings be made for all men:
For kings and for all that are in high station: that we may lead a quiet and a peaceable life in all piety and chastity.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour,
Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
For there is one God: and one mediator of God and men, the man Christ Jesus:
Who gave himself a redemption for all, a testimony in due times.
Whereunto I am appointed a preacher and an apostle (I say the truth, I lie not), a doctor of the Gentiles in faith and truth.
I will therefore that men pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger and contention.
