For Whom Did You Pray Today

1Tim. 2:1 I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them; intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them. 2 Pray this way for kings and all who are in authority so that we can live peaceful and quiet lives marked by godliness and dignity. 3 This is good and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants everyone to be saved and to understand the truth. 5 For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. 6 He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time.

We have many wonderful privileges as children of God through faith in Jesus Christ. One of those is that we are invited to bring others before God and request on their behalf. Notice for whom God's inspired Scripture tells us we ought to be praying--' everyone!' The Word of God is clear that He does not hear prayers from non believers until they reach up to Him in belief. But He does hear prayers ABOUT non-believers from us-- indeed He invited us to pray for them. You have a role through prayer in the lives of others. Why not exercise that role more aggressively today?
