Dear Tim:



The very first thing is this:
     That you entreat for everyone;
     That you pray hard for everyone;
     That you intercede for everyone;
     That you give thanks for everyone;
Even for politicians and your leaders!

So that:
     They may live quiet lives (and therefor you as well);
     They may live peaceful lives (and therefor you as well);
     They may live holy lives (and therefor you as well);
     They may live dignified lives (and therefor you as well);
This is good and right in the eyes of the Lord!

The Lord desires that everyone be saved, and
The Lord desires that everyone know the truth:
     There is but one God; and
     We have only one Advocate -
          Fully human, yet fully divine;
          Son of Man, and Son of God;
          Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah;
               Who handed himself over to Injustice;
               Who submitted himself to the Inquisitors;
               Who allowed himself to be tortured by us;
               Who gave himself and his life for all of us!

For this I was made a Witness,
For this I was made a Reporter,
For this I was made a Teacher -
     To those of other nationalities,
     And to those of other ethnicities,
     And to those of other religions.
