1 Timothy 2

pray for your nation, intercession for country

Have we neglected God’s heart of prayer for our homeland?

Why does Paul attach so much importance to praying for those holding positions of authority in the land? Should we really even bother with those corrupt kings, prime ministers, presidents, judges, magistrates, and legislators? The answer comes in the verse that follows. "This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth." (1 Timothy 2:3-4, ESV).
