The Nature of Prayer – 2

I urge that prayers be made for all men (from 1 Timothy 2:1).

This prayer carries with it a unique element of worship and reverence.

Prayer for the lost is ultimately directed at God as an act of worship, because the salvation of sinners causes them to give glory to Him.*

*John MacArthur, The MacArthur New Testament Commentary 1 Timothy, p. 62.
