Pray according to the desire of our Savior God that all men would be saved and would come to the full knowledge of the truth (1 Tim. 2:1-4; 4:10; John 3:16-17).

1 Tim. 2:1-4—I exhort therefore, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions, thanksgivings be made on behalf of all men; on behalf of kings and all who are in high position, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all godliness and gravity. This is good and acceptable in the sight of our Savior God, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the full knowledge of the truth.

1 Tim. 4:10—For to this end we labor and strive, because we have set our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe.

John 3:16-17—For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone who believes into Him would not perish, but would have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
