“Remind them to be submissive to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready for every good work, to speak evil of no one, to avoid quarreling, to be gentle, and to show perfect courtesy toward all people.”
We are Your hands and feet here on earth. Help us to act justly and honorably, and be prepared to perform the good works You have prepared for us. Sweeten our speech so that we only speak words that are kind, compassionate, and forgiving. Help us to not quarrel with anyone, rather help us be kind and gentle, and look for our common interests and goals. We lift up our leaders and all those in authority over us and pray You give them wisdom in all matters. Help us to be obedient citizens and show submission and humility to our leaders and neighbors in all we do.
