    1 Tim 2.1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
    2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
    3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
    Jer 29.7 ; And seek the peace of the city whither I have caused you to be carried away captives, and pray unto the LORD for it: for in the peace thereof shall ye have peace.
    Ye have not because ye ask not; or amiss or not mixed with faith. *GOD* IS FAITHFUL Ps 138.8 ; Is 26.12
