(YLT) 1 Tim 1:18-2:8 This charge I commit to thee, child Timotheus, according to the prophesies that went before upon thee, that thou mayest war in them the good warfare, having faith and a good conscience, which certain having thrust away, concerning the faith did make shipwreck, of whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I did deliver to the Adversary, that they might be instructed not to speak evil. I exhort, then, first of all, there be made supplications, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings, for all men: for kings, and all who are in authority, that a quiet and peaceable life we may lead in all piety and gravity, for this [is] right and acceptable before God our Saviour, who does will all men to be saved, and to come to the full knowledge of the truth; for one [is] God, one also [is] mediator of God and of men, the man Christ Jesus, who did give himself a ransom for all -- the testimony in its own times -- in regard to which I was set a preacher and apostle -- truth I say in Christ, I do not lie -- a teacher of nations, in faith and truth. I wish, therefore, that men pray in every place, lifting up kind hands, apart from anger and reasoning;
>This charge for warfare is a call to prayer from our Apostle Paul. We have authority to depart from the spirit of anger and reasoning, doubting, disputing in our prayers. We can recognize that that spirit is not from God. We can attend upon our prayers without distraction with an acceptable attitude of faith and meekness. Jesus said "Be of good cheer for I have overcome the world."
>Y'all have a good day! With Love in Christ, Robert.
