Almighty God, you are sovereign. There is no other god like you who goes out for the salvation of your beloved. Jesus, your beloved third of the everlasting trinity, came for our salvation in your perfect plan and timing. You also control the timing of his second coming. No one will scoff the signs then, for we all will hear and see and know. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. I pray in the power of your name, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“‘He who sent me is true, and him you do not know. I know him, for I come from him, and he sent me. ‘So they were seeking to arrest him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. Yet many of the people believed in him. They said, ‘When the Christ appears, will he do more signs than this man has done?’” (John 7:28-31 ESV)
