I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
This is what I have always wanted, to lead a quiet and peaceable life. I imagine most people have similar desires. Life isn't always simple and quiet and peaceable, and sometimes we have to get involved with the business of earning a living, caring for a family, and making a difference for good in the world and community. I still believe that we each need to find quiet and peaceable times in our lives where we can be still. We need times of prayer and contemplation, and times of inspiration. If we sincerely make the time to quietly seek out the Lord each day, I know he will bless us with the knowledge that He lives and with the strength that we need to make our way through the challenges and difficulties of life.
Verily, verily, I say unto you, if you desire a further witness, cast your mind upon the night that you cried unto me in your heart, that you might know concerning the truth of these things. Did I not speak peace to your mind concerning the matter? What greater witness can you have than from God?
