Almighty Omnipotent God, you are He who lives forever. You created heaven and what is in it. You created the earth and the seas and what is in them. You declare what the seven thunders have said and what is written down in the sealed little scroll that embittered John’s stomach. You determine the time of the seventh trumpet and the fulfillment of the mystery of God. There is no one like you. There is no one more wise, more loving, or more just. I stand to lift my hands to heaven in praise to the name above all names, Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“And the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it, that there would be no more delay, but that in the days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel, the mystery of God would be fulfilled, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.” (Revelation 10:5-7 ESV)
