The Lord does not delay his promise, as some understand delay, but is patient with you, not wanting any to perish but all to come to repentance.
2 PETER 3:9, CSB
Father, You have been patient with _________________ up to this point in his/her life. Every day he/she lives is
a testimony to the fact that You long for all people to hear the gospel and come to saving faith. Continue to
show mercy and extend _______________’s life. In Your kindness, allow him/her to experience the beautiful
things You’ve created and that display Your glory. Protect him/her from the full extent of the consequences
of his/her sin, and allow the consequences that he/she does experience to point him/her to the need for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.
