 Is it even Biblical to Pray for a Person’s Salvation?

Recently, someone told me that it is not Biblical to pray for someone’s salvation.  He said that the Bible instructs us to pray for more laborers, but it never instructs us to pray for the salvation of specific individuals.  This got me curious, so I started taking a closer look at this subject.  When I asked others about their thoughts, I got responses ranging from, “Yes, of course.  God desires that we intervene on the behalf of others,” all the way to, “Definitely no; what ARROGANCE!!!!”

The Bible, of course, has to be our final authority.  So, what does it say     … ?
