Lord God, if anyone has an ear, let him hear the entreaty of Revelation. Let him envision the first beast taking over the rule of earth, receiving power from the great dragon. Let him see the scene John describes of the whole world worshiping this beast with blasphemous names on its seven heads. Let him realize the urgency of the times and turn to Jesus in faith. I pray Paul’s plea that eyes of unbelievers be opened, and that you give them the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of you, Lord. I ask in your name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.” (Revelation 13:10b ESV)
