1 Timothy 2:7-8
V 8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting
Paul here is instructing who should lead pray and worship when the church meets together; the men, he is quiet clear on the subject of who needs to step up and lead. He also instructs them on what their lives should look like. He tells them that their lives should be holy and godly and free from any worldly pollutant. Now, as I said Paul is specifically talking to men here but isn’t this a characteristic that all people should have in their hearts while worshiping. I, as a woman, can’t lead corporate but I can, and should, participate in it. A life that is godly, holy and unpolluted by the world is essential for worship and prayer.
