God Bless America
I TIMOTHY 2:1-8

Instructions on Worship
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers,
intercession and thanksgiving be made for all
people— 2for kings and all those in authority, that
we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all
godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases
God our Savior, 4who wants all people to be saved
and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5For
there is one God and one mediator between God
and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, 6who gave
himself as a ransom for all people. This has now
been witnessed to at the proper time. 7And for
this purpose I was appointed a herald and an
apostle—I am telling the truth, I am not lying—
and a true and faithful teacher of the Gentiles.
8Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray,

informs us. BUT ONLY CHRIST TRANSFORMS
US.”

not doing it.”
