We Are Commanded To Pray For World Peace
1 Timothy 2:1-6
1 “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men;
2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.
3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.”
Notice: The Bible says we are to pray for all earthly authorities that they get saved, so that there can be world peace in godliness and honesty. It does not say we are supposed to sit back do nothing while the world goes to hell and just pray that Jesus comes back and brings world peace!
Since we are commanded to pray for world peace through the salvation of all people (Including and especially all earthly authorities), we are commanded to believe that it will happen.
Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
James 1:6-8 “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Since world peace through the salvation of all people is God’s will, God will give it to us if we pray and believe.
1 John 5:14-15 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.”
