1 Timothy 2:1-6 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

A Call to Prayer

First of all, then, I urge that requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made in behalf of all people, for kings and all who are in [a]authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and [b]dignity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to the [c]knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony [d]given at [e]the proper time.
