Lord, the signs of the end times are swirling all around me. Some of the prophesies are unfolding right before my eyes. It would be easy to believe that the final judgement is coming soon. Those who trust in you and your promises are excited and can’t wait. We long for your return, just as the Jews yearned for a Messiah before your first coming.
You tell us not to try to determine when the final day will occur. You say you will return like a thief in the night – unexpected. I know we must all be ready and eager for that day. I pray for an end to all the corruption, needless brutality, sexual immorality and that Your justice will be given out with perfect knowledge and wisdom.
Help me to trust that you are in control of every second, minute, hour and day. You hold the world in the palm of Your hand and only You know the time when You will return.
Until then I pray, it’s getting harder and harder to wait so please come soon, Lord, Jesus. AMEN!
