Paul whispers to Timothy to practice four kinds of prayers for all men. His message sits in the context of the greatest foundational truths ever---Christ came to deliver us from ourselves. Paul spoke forward future to the now 7, 385, 473, 766 people alive on this planet. A tall task to love all men in our stories.
"Now the once whispered word peals like the voice of many waters and mighty thunderings over the whole Church of God.” Ellicott Commentary.
