we may live peaceful and quiet lives

I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—  for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is good, and pleases God our Savior,
Therefore I want the men everywhere to pray, lifting up holy hands without anger or disputing.
1 Timothy 2:1-3,8
