You have influence in the realm of the Spirit
1Tim 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men;
It’s really interesting how now, because we have been reconciled to God through Christ (1 Tim2:4), we can intercede for people.
Here, we are urged to pray for people because we are now in a position of right standing with the father, only a son can have influence with the Father. Remember, to those that believe, He gave the power to become His son.
As the scripture instructs, use your influence with God to help people. Ask God to help them, He’’ll listen to you. The verse ended by saying we should give thanks for them; thank God for the people He made, if they aren’t believers, thank God for them, because they will soon be. Pray for everyone, because no matter who they are, God loves them, and needs us before He can act on the earth; so your prayers are powerful and go a long way.
#pray Lord, teach me to show your love in prayer
