Proper 20C

Day: Proper 20C

Lectionary Passage: 1 Timothy 2:1-8

Scripture Focus: 1 Timothy 2:1-3

Object: None

How many of you have ever prayed for others? That’s great! But I wonder how many of us remember to pray for someone who is authority? That means someone who is in charge, like your principal or police officers or the President of the United States. I know that sometimes I forget to pray for these people.

Luckily, our Bible passage for today reminds us to pray for them. So, I want us to do just that right now.  Fold your hands and close your eyes and repeat each part after me:

Dear God, we give you thanks for all the people who are in authority. We pray that they will make good choices and follow Jesus Christ. And we pray that you will help keep them safe. We ask all this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
