Watch therefore, for you know neither the day
nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
we made our prayer to our God,
& because of them
we set a watch against them day & night.
be serious & watchful in your prayers.
1 Peter 4:7
Continue earnestly in prayer,
being vigilant in it with thanksgiving;
Watch, stand fast in the faith,
be brave, be strong.
1 Corinthians 16:13
Take heed, watch & pray
Let your waist be girded
& your lamps burning;
(Luke 12:35 NKJV)
& what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!
take heed to yourselves & to all the flock,
among which the HOLY SPIRIT
has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of
which HE purchased with HIS own blood.
Be dressed ready for service &
keep your lamps burning,
like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes & knocks they can immediately open the door for him.
It will be good for those servants whose master finds them watching when he comes.
I tell you the truth, he will dress himself to serve,
will have them recline at the table
& will come & wait on them.
It will be good for those servants whose master finds them ready, even if he comes in the second
or third watch of the night.
But understand this: If the owner of the house
had known at what hour the thief was coming,
he would not have let his house be broken into.
You also must be ready, because the
SON of MAN
will come at an hour when you do not expect him."
Therefore you also be ready,
for the Son of Man is coming
at an hour you do not expect.
praying always with all prayer
& supplication in the Spirit,
being watchful to this end
with all perseverance & supplication
for all the saints
