Day-by-day the time of your coming approaches, Lord. Evil shows its ugliness openly now. Justice dies in the streets. Persecution of the faithful comes close to being codified. Let your people echo the cry of the angel to worship you who made heaven and earth, the sea and the springs of water. Babylon will fall. God’s wrath is sure, but those who die in the Lord are blessed, resting from their labors, honored for their deeds for the kingdom. I pray for the endurance of your saints who keep your commands and stand upon their faith in the one who is in all things and above all things, Jesus the Christ, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus.” (Revelation 14:12 ESV)
