I Timothy 2:1-6 outlines the will of Yahveh concerning prayer. "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and [for] all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this [is] good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For [there is] one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all perseverance and supplication for all saints;" Eph. 6:18 KJV
