Praying through 2 Peter 3:3

Heavenly Father, it is not Your will that anyone should perish but that all should come to repentance and be saved, by grace though faith in Christ. Look down in pity on those that choose to scoff and mock at the glorious gospel of God. In Your mercy, grace, long-suffering, and great love, please open the eyes of some of these scoffers to the truth of Your Word. May they finally accept the free gift of salvation and be brought into Your kingdom. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.

Praying through 2 Peter 3:4

Heavenly Father, the world is willingly ignorant of the glorious gospel of grace and Christ’s astonishing, atoning sacrifice for sin. People scoff and mock at the predictions of His return to judge the world in righteousness. Lord, I plead Your mercy on all who mock and scorn the truth of Your Word and pray that some would be brought to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ Who died to save all who trust in Him as Saviour. I pray this in Jesus' precious name, AMEN.

Heavenly Father, thank You for the many reminders in Scripture to hold fast to the truth of Your Word. Help me to continuously bring to mind that You are my great and mighty Creator Who spoke the world into being and fashioned man in Your own image. Thank You that despite the sin of our forefathers, You purposed to redeem mankind by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. As the day of His return draws ever closer and so many are choosing to remain ignorant of the things of God, I pray that in Your grace You would convict many of their need of Christ and restore hope to those that are lost. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

Praying through 2 Peter 3:6

Heavenly Father, as the united voice of scoffers clamour against Your Word and insist that You will never judge the world as You did in Noah's day, it is clear that we are now in those predicted perilous times when arrogant men are lovers of self, haters of God, and weighed down with sin. Give me the wisdom to know what to do when confronted by the deception of this age, and I pray that I may be clothed with the armour of God so that I may stand firm in the faith. Help me to be a witness of the truth of Your Word and warn others of the impending judgement that You have clearly laid out in Your Word. Open the eyes of those that have been blinded to the truth and bring many into the kingdom, for Your dear name's sake. In Jesus' name, AMEN.

Help me to share the gospel with all I meet so that many may come to a saving knowledge of Christ and be spared a part in the Lake of Fire. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Heavenly Father, thank You for telling us the fate of the heavens and the earth; that it will all be burned up, pass away, and be dissolved.
