1 Timothy 2:1-8

Prayer for everyone

1 First of all, then, I ask that requests, prayers, petitions, and thanksgiving be made for all people.
2 Pray for kings and everyone who is in authority so that we can live a quiet and peaceful life in complete godliness and dignity.
3 This is right and it pleases God our savior,
4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
5 There is one God and one mediator between God and humanity, the human Christ Jesus,
6 who gave himself as a payment to set all people free. This was a testimony that was given at the right time.
7 I was appointed to be a preacher and apostle of this testimony—I'm telling the truth and I'm not lying! I'm a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth.

Instructions for men and women

8 Therefore, I want men to pray everywhere by lifting up hands that are holy, without anger or argument.
