Monday of week 24 in Ordinary Time
First reading – 1 Timothy 2:1-8
The advice of Paul is very important. We must pray for all, especially for those in authority so that we may be able to live religious and reverent lives in peace and quiet. When we pray for everyone, we are participating in the will of God to save everyone. That is why praying for everyone pleases God. Praying for everyone is also an act of honoring Christ Jesus, who sacrificed himself as a ransom for all. How to make this prayer for everyone? This must be done by lifting our hands reverently without anger or argument. Let’s reflect: Is anyone left out in my prayers?
