Tuesday prayer: May God grant them repentance

In yesterday's musing we noted that, lacking the language of "good" and "evil," abortion advocates miss out on repentance and forgiveness of sins. Ponder these verses as you ask God to grant them repentance:
The Lord is not slow . . . but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9
The kindness of God leads to repentance. Romans 2:4
The sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation, but the sorrow of the world produces death. 2 Corinthians 7:10
The God of our fathers raised up Jesus . . . whom God exalted to His right hand as a Prince and a Savior, to grant repentance . . . and forgiveness of sins. Acts 5:30-31
You are witnesses that repentance for forgiveness of sins would be proclaimed in Jesus' name to all the nations. Luke 24:47-48
Christ came to call sinners to repentance. Luke 5:32
There is joy in heaven over every sinner who repents. Luke 15:7
