The Art of Praying is a secret act of love to another person, interceding on their behalf to God and partnering with God for their good. Evangelistic prayer warms your heart to the object of your prayer, while declaring that God is the only one who can change a human heart.
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 1 Timothy 2:1-4
