1 And when he had completed all his words in the hearing of the people, he entered Capernaum.
2 Now the servant of a certain centurion was dying, due to an illness. And he was very dear to him.
3 And when he had heard about Jesus, he sent elders of the Jews to him, petitioning him, so that he would come and heal his servant.
4 And when they had come to Jesus, they petitioned him anxiously, saying to him: "He is worthy that you should provide this to him.
5 For he loves our nation, and he has built a synagogue for us."
6 Then Jesus went with them. And when he was now not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to him, saying: "Lord, do not trouble yourself. For I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof.
7 Because of this, I also did not consider myself worthy to come to you. But say the word, and my servant shall be healed.
8 For I also am a man placed under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant, 'Do this,' and he does it."
9 And upon hearing this, Jesus was amazed. And turning to the multitude following him, he said, "Amen I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith."
10 And those who had been sent, upon returning to the house, found that the servant, who had been sick, was now healthy.
1 Timothy 2:1-8
1 And so I beg you, first of all, to make supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings for all men,
2 for kings, and for all who are in high places, so that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all piety and chastity.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,
4 who wants all men to be saved and to arrive at an acknowledgment of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator of God and of men, the man Christ Jesus,
6 who gave himself as a redemption for all, as a testimony in its proper time.
7 Of this testimony, I have been appointed a preacher and an Apostle, (I speak the truth, I do not lie) as a teacher of the Gentiles, in faith and in truth.
8 Therefore, I want men to pray in every place, lifting up pure hands, without anger or dissension.
