God is Longsuffering

Read this verse twice slowly, focusing on the important words and ideas.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

Below are four ways you can pray through 2 Peter 3:9 personally or with your family. 

Confession: God, I confess that I take Your longsuffering for granted.
Adoration: I adore You for being a God of merciful patience and that amidst a world full of darkness You are slow to anger and full of grace.
Thanksgiving: Lord, thank You for allowing us to repent and believe in You.
Supplication: Help me reach out to those who do not yet know You; the God who is longsuffering and generously grants us time to repent.
