In 1 Timothy 2:1-3, God calls us to prayer. He wants us to pray for everyone. As the Bible says for all men, including kings and all in authority. God wants us to pray for people to forgive anyone we have ought against. Then God will forgive us as we pray. Prayer and forgiveness go hand in hand all throughout the Bible. In Psalms, King David is praying. David always prays for a quiet and peaceable life. It is a product of our prayers and forgiveness. Even though, man has done something against us, it isn’t our job to seek revenge. God says that the battle is His, not ours. And again, God wants everyone to come to Him and repent of our sins. Jesus died for every human being on this earth. And everyone has the opportunity to accept God’s offer of salvation. God is fair to all mankind. God is also patient and will wait for us all of our lifetime. But once it over, it is over. The real reason that God wants us to pray for everyone is to be close to God, to see Him do for us and to change the world starting with us. For God to hear us, we must be right before Him. When we get right before God, our heart is set free from sin. Then we are able to stand before God and fellowship with Him. Then we will see God for who He is. God is the same, yesterday, today and forever.
