Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
All Commentaries on 1 Timothy 2:4 Go To 1 Timothy 2
Do not be afraid to pray for the Gentiles. God himself wills it. Fear only to pray against anyone. For that God does not will. And if you pray for the heathen, you ought of course to pray for heretics as well, for we are to pray for all humanity and not to persecute. And this is good also for another reason: We are partakers of the same nature. God calls us to have good will and affection toward one another.
