Pray for Your Leaders

1 Timothy 2:1-4

Pay particular attention to verse 2 in this passage. First, it says pray for political leaders such as kings. But then notice, "and all those in authority." That includes your boss at work. How long has it been since you prayed for your boss? Look at the types of prayers to be made in verse 1. Have you made a request on behalf of your boss (other than "please get rid of my boss")? Have you thanked God for his/her leadership? Do you pray for his/her salvation? Why is this important? Two reasons. First, "that we may live peaceful and quiet lives." If your relationship with your boss is a stormy relationship at best, consider praying for him or her. Not just prayers asking for a new boss, but prayers on your boss's behalf. The second reason to pray for your boss is in verse 4. Because God wants everyone "to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth." Pray for your boss. See the change God can make in your workplace.
