Hear Michael Speaking!
I am who stands in the sight of God every hour.
As the Lord lives, in whose sight I stand,
I do not stop one day or one night praying incessantly for the human race
And I indeed pray for those who are on the earth;
But they do not cease committing iniquity and fornications,
And they do not do any good while they are placed on earth;
And you have consumed in vanity the time in which you ought to have repented.
― The Apocalypse of Paul
