Perhaps God will grant them repentance leading them to the knowledge of the truth. Then they may come to their senses and escape the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. 2 TIMOTHY 2:25–26, CSB
Father, Your opponents can only know You when they experience true repentance. I know most people do not consider themselves opponents, or even enemies, of God. But that’s exactly what they are. They are held captive by Satan to do his will rather than Yours. _____ is a classic example of this reality. He/she will only recognize that captivity when he/she repents of his/her sin. Cause _____ to see his/her sin for what it is—rebellion against his/her Creator and disobedience to Your perfect law. Grant him/her true repentance, not just sorrow for sin’s consequences. Help _____ to admit his/her sin and turn from it toward You.
