1. What does civic duty mean to you? Is it important in your Christian walk?
2. Why does Paul urge us to pray for those in authority in 1 Timothy 2:1-2?
3. Considering your answer above, what then is the God-given purpose of good government? Do you believe this is happening in Canada today?
4. What is the difference between supplications, prayers and intercessions (v.1)?
5. In what ways can you involve yourself in the affairs of government to help others in Mississauga?

6. Regardless of whether you live under a godly or ungodly authority, we can rest in God’s sovereignty over all things. Find three stories from the scriptures that demonstrate how God has ultimate control of all governing authority.
