Prayer for 1 Timothy 2

Praying through 1 Timothy 2:1

Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift and privilege of prayer. It is amazing to realise that by faith in Christ's sacrificial work on the Cross, I have been given access into the very throne room of Almighty God to intercede on behalf of others and to offer my prayers and supplications to You. Teach me to pray aright and help me to develop an ongoing attitude of prayerful thanksgiving and reverential praise - for You alone are worthy. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;”
(1 Timothy 2:1)

A Prayer For Our Country

Lord God and Heavenly King, You alone are the Lord of the earth and King of the universe, and You alone can revive and restore the United States Of America and bring us back under Your own Sovereign rule.

Give our President, together with his advisors and the whole of his administration, the wisdom and grace to turn from the ungodly path that they are following, and may they set this nation back on the path of trusting in God.

Motivate all our congressmen to strive for integrity and wisdom in all the choices and decisions they make, and may those that are entrusted as judges and lawmakers, likewise act in righteousness, impartiality and integrity as they work for the benefit of all people, and to the honour of Your holy name.

Heavenly King, we place our nation at your feet, and pray that we may once again serve You as a nation. May Your will be done in the once greatest nation of the world, the United States of America.


“For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.”
(1 Timothy 2:2)

Praying through 1 Timothy 2:11

Heavenly Father, thank You for the wonderful way that You have ordained the roles and responsibilities of Christian men and women to complement one another and to reflect the relationship between Christ and the Church. May I be one that seeks to behave in a manner that honours You, both at home and in the wider community. May my life and behaviour compliment the brothers and sisters in my own church community.

Praying through 1 Timothy 2:12

Heavenly Father, forgive us for the current, frenzied mindset of 'women’s lib' and women's rights which has caused complete confusion in many of our churches and Christian communities. Forgive us, for interpreting Your Word with liberal glasses which consider biblical truth to be outdated and irrelevant, or for teaching it with a legalistic mindset where women are either elevated into unbiblical roles within the Church, or prevented from engaging in any form of service to God and others. Thank You that You determined an order in creation, in our homes, in the wider community, and within our church fellowships. May the people Who are called by Your name, reject the world’s mindset and return to reading Your Word, in spirit and in truth. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

“But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.”
(1 Timothy 2:12)
