1 Timothy 2:1 First of all, then, I urge that petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgiving be offered on behalf of all men 2 for kings and all those in authority, so that we may lead tranquil and quiet lives in all godliness and dignity.

The bible instructs us to pray for all. There’s no one left out of all. This includes people we don’t like, people who’ve hurt us, and people that were never there for us. All means all. It may be difficult, but not impossible. We pray that they submit to God, we pray that they repent and turn from their evil ways, and we pray the powers of darkness be removed from their minds.

These verses specifically instruct us to pray for leaders and those in authority. We pray for them because they’re the ones making decisions that will impact the rest of us. If the devil was going to attack anyone, he’ll probably go for leaders first because if he can successfully corrupt the top, everything else will most likely fall.

Let’s put our personal feelings aside and pray for everyone. When we do what God instructs us to do, we position ourselves to be successful (Isaiah 1:19).
