Following his comment on the rain, Graham proceeded to read first from 1 Timothy 2:1-6, which exhorts believers to pray for their leadership.
1 Timothy 2:1-6, "Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time
He then concluded with 1 Timothy 1:17, which reads "Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen."
