Law: pray to love
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
—1 Timothy 2:1-2 (NIV)
There is nothing that makes us love a man so much, as praying for him.
