1 Timothy 2:1‑2  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 4
I exhort therefore, that  .  .  . prayers  .  .  . be made  .  .  .  for kings, and for all that are in authority.
When was the last time you prayed for President Bush by name? (Brian Mulroney? He’s Prime Minister of Canada!) Are you praying daily for the salvation of Saddam Hussein’s soul? Scripture is very clear that we need to be specific in prayer. We tend to be very general sometimes and with one sentence cover everyone from pole to pole. God wants us to pray for individuals - by name. Let’s pray this way -and see what power there is in specific prayer.
