The Nature of Prayer – 3

I urge that petitions be made on behalf of all men (1 Timothy 2:1).

When we make petition for others, we identify with their needs, and become involved in their struggles. We advocate for their salvation with empathy, sympathy and compassion*

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