Wesley's Notes for 1 Timothy 2:3


2:3 For this - That we pray for all men. Do you ask, Why are not more converted? We do not pray enough. Is acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour - Who has actually saved us that believe, and willeth all men to be saved. It is strange that any whom he has actually saved should doubt the universality of his grace!
