“Pray For All Our People”

Key Verse

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men” (1 Timothy 2:1).

Text — 1 Timothy 2:1-8


Why pray for all people? Our Bible text gives us the answer. It is for the salvation of all and that we may live a qiet and peaceable life. Men (including women, boys and girls) of all races were made by God who is the God of all.  We need to pray for the salvation of sinners, irrespective of their nationality and race; and open doors for the gospel, especially, in countries that openly legislate against the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We need to ask God to frustrate the agenda of oppressive warmongers who are amassing weapons of mass destruction across the globe, instead of working for peace. Yes, pray for all in authority, including security agents. On this World Day against Child Labour, we should also pray for children who are being abused, especially in developing countries. Instead of being in school, many children are engaged in street hawking, farming, househelp duties, and some are trafficked for dubious purposes. Yet, God’s plan is for their proper growth and development (Psalm 144:12). If you are saved, you must pray for the salvation of all sinners.   


We need to pray


Pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands.

Prayer for today

Lord make me an intercessor.

  1. Thank you Jesus for the commands to pray for everyone at all levels.
    We need more of the saints of God to stand up in the gap at this critical moment in our lives, the devil and his servants worldwide are growing stronger waging spiritual war against children of God hence this message is very important for us.
