REVEALED WORD TODAY
// Read: 1 Timothy 2:1-8 //
2 I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3 This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time. 7 And for this purpose I was appointed a herald and an apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles.
8 Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.
God inhabits the praise of his people (Ps. 22:3). Prayer is not complete without thanksgiving. It is when one can thank God for what He is yet to do that shows faith in Him. Cultivate the habit of daily praise to have access and obtain your request from God.
PRAYER: Pray for grace to praise God by faith.
