Script for today: PDCP- 09/30/14- “First Things First, Priorities”

Posted on Updated on

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. (‭1 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭1-2‬ NIV)

First and foremost, let’s get our priorities in line with God’s priorities. He insists, by strongly admonishing us, with persuasive urging, that we should devote ourselves to being aware of people’s needs, by drafting petitions with specific names and requests on them, in order to offer up intelligent prayers, and humble supplications, on their behalf; being willing to intercede, standing in the gap before The Lord, asking Him to intervene and act, in accordance to their needs and to their greatest benefit, always giving thanks at all times and on all occasions, with a heart of gratitude and blessing. We have been given this responsibility, by The Lord Himself, to make sure that this is happening, on a regular basis, for all people everywhere, especially for those who are in positions of leadership and all those who have been given authority, with influence and power, to make decisions that affect our daily lives. We are commanded to do this, so that we may live our lives in a serene, peaceful and tranquil state of being, having the opportunity afforded us to live a godly, virtuous, devoutly righteous life, that will bring honor to God. (1 Timothy 2:1-2 PDCP)
