7/19/17 Prayer For All People

“The first, and most important instruction I have for you in order to fulfill this charge is prayer.  You, and all the brothers and sisters under your leadership, must pray continually for everyone.  Prayers of thanksgiving for all that God has given, prayers of intercession on behalf of others, prayers to ask God to meet your own needs.  But you must pray for all people everywhere, whether friends or enemies, and especially for those in authority over you, so that we all may live as God would have us do, peacefully and quietly, in obedience to God.  God does not discriminate; He loves every one of us and wants everyone to come to Jesus to be saved and to know the truth.  We know that there is only one God, and that His one and only Son, Jesus, our Messiah, is the only one who can pay the penalty for our sins and reconcile us to God.  He sacrificed Himself as the ransom for all people, so that all who call upon Him to save them from their sins will be saved, and will be witnesses of His power to save us all.  I testify before God and Jesus the Messiah, that it was for this purpose that He called me to be His apostle to the Gentiles, a teacher for them in faith and truth.”
