The bible is the best authority, as always, I Tim.2:1-5;

1"First of all, then, I urge that entreaties and prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf of all men, 2for kings and all who are in authority, so that we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and dignity. 3This is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, 4who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. 5For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time" 1 Timothy 2:1-5

I Tim. 4:10 - "For it is for this we labor and strive, because we have fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers."

Thanks for the explanation. I understand. I chose these verses from I Timothy from amoungamong many such verses found in the bible (for example II Pet.3:9c - "not wishing that any should perish' etc.) to illustrate that it is God's will of desire that all men have opportunity for salvation.

I am aware that strong Calvinist interprtinterpret these and like verses to apply only to the elect. I do not believe the Greek supports the translation; ex. in Timothy as "All types or categories of men" nor in II Pet. "Not willing that any of us-ward (i.e. believers) should perish." Therefore I believe it is clearly proper to pray for the salvation of the unsaved.
