First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity.

"...so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity." How are we doing today? Have we added to the discourse of fear, hatred, and anger? Have we lost our minds? Have we lost our way? Have we forgotten who we are and whose we are? To all who are fearful and all who are ashamed, shhhh. Let's pray. Together. For peace.

Lord, hear our prayer. Amen
