1 Timothy 2:1-4 (NIV)
I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.
Is not easy to pray for someone who is irritating you....who seems to be coming against you.....who perhaps is purposely trying to harm you....BUT the Word of God calls us to pray for our enemies (Matthew 5:44).....I challenge you this morning to ask God to help you pray for that one who as far as your concerned deserves no prayer at all....BUT God who loves you and picked you up and saved you...did the same for YOU (Romans 5:8).....so with the help of the Helper.....PRAY...pray that men would be saved and come to the knowledge of Truth! The Apostle Paul (previously Saul) was an enemy of the Truth...until God got a hold of him and changed and transformed him for the Glory of God!
God bless you!~Liz
