October 19, 2016 – Day 18

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. —1 Timothy 2:14

Pray today for our world, national, and local leaders, pastors, teachers, and those in military service.

Perhaps one of the greatest ways to experience the power of prayer is through intercession—praying for others. —Jack Graham (from Lord, Hear Our Cry)
