1 Timothy 2:1-4 – THE WIDENESS OF PRAYER
God never intended us to be narrow in the scope or our prayers. Philippians 4:6 tells us we can pray for everything that is of concern to us. In these verses we are reminded of:
THE BROAD VARIETY OF PRAYER – Vs. 1 – supplications, prayers, intercessions, giving of thanks.
THE BROAD OBJECTS OF PRAYER – Vss. 1-2 – All men, kings, all in authority, so that we can lead a quiet and peaceable life in godliness and honesty.
THE BROAD DESIRE OF GOD – Vss. 3-4 – That all will be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. Of course, not all will be saved, because not all will turn to Christ. But the more we pray, the better the conditions will be to see folks come to Christ. God wants everyone to receive Christ!
