Thank you that much about the end times have been revealed to us.
Thank you for the saving work of Christ’s life and death on the cross, and with it, the inauguration of the kingdom that is to come when Christ inevitably returns.
Thank you for your everlasting faithfulness, from which we are able to derive hope, and even joy, as we endure suffering for your name’s sake; knowing that each passing day is one day closer to the consummation of our redemption, and that our current sufferings are nothing compared to the surpassing worth of knowing the Lord.
And so I pray, Lord, that you will continue to persevere us until the very end; that we will heed the numerous warnings throughout the scriptures, to be ready, to be on guard, to keep vigil as a faithful servant, who knows not the appointed day and hour of his master’s return, would. May we flee from false prophets and false teachings, and instead pay attention and hold on firmly to the gospel. Preserve us; help us be diligent in leading a life of godliness and holiness so that we may be found spotless and without blemish when he returns. May we continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To you be glory, now and forever.
