Prayer for 1 Timothy 2:12

“I do not allow a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; instead, she is to be silent.”

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 Forgive us for interpreting Your Word with liberal glasses - which consider biblical truth to be outdated and irrelevant...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 - this we ask in Jesus' name, AMEN.
