Today’s reading: 1 Timothy 2:1-4
Prayers for all men
We read in 1 Timothy 2:1-4:
1 Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4 who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
The Apostle Paul used different terms to describe the different ways we should pray for one another. He mentioned supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving thanks — all of which are different aspects of what we pray for.
What’s so important about this is that prayers should be made for ALL men, which is something most Christians might neglect to do. It’s easy to pray for friends, families, and loved ones. However, we are instructed to also pray for our enemies, the unloving, the people who annoy us, the people who hurt us, and the people who make our life difficult.
We pray not just for ourselves, but also for others. We pray as well that more people come to the knowledge of the truth and they will learn the ways of Yahweh.
The Apostle Paul specifically instructs us to pray for kings and those who are in authority. We are to pray that they make the right decisions for our community and country. We pray that they would not hinder the preaching of the Word and they won’t persecute us. We pray that they make regulations and laws that will benefit the work of God.
The reason that we are going to pray for all men is that God wants to save all men. Abba didn’t send His Son to die for the Christians alone. Yahshua didn’t die for only a select group. He died for everyone.
The love of God and His Son extends throughout the world. Thus, we should and we must pray for everyone whether they are within the Body of Christ or not.
We should start taking prayer seriously. May we live a prayerful and faithful life.
