Prayer for Leaders


Text: 1 Timothy 2:1-2


Do you want to live in peace?

Do you know there are four types of prayer for others


Four Expressions of Prayer

Entreaties……………asking of God

Prayers………………..speaking with God

Petitions………………seeking the intervention of God

Thanksgiving………..expressing gratitude to God


Three Objects of Prayer

All men

For all humanity

Kings

Governing Rulers

For those in authority

Civil authorities

Religious authorities


Two Benefits of this kind of prayer

So that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life

Experiencing peace and security

(So that we may) live in godliness and dignity

Experiencing freedom of conscience and personal value


IF we are not experiencing a tranquil and quiet life

in all godliness and dignity,

Then perhaps it is because we have not made requests,

prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving on behalf of all

people, for kings, and all who are in authority.
