    Let us review the commonly understood definitions from English vocabulary.
    Omnipresent
    present everywhere at the same time
    Omnipotent
    Having unlimited or universal power, authority, or force; all-powerful
    Omniscient
    having complete or unlimited knowledge, awareness, or understanding; perceiving all things
    For my mind the following provides a rough reference to such concept in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji in one of the shabads from many more in totality of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji,
    From this shabad I get that Omnipresent is reflection of oneness that exists within all of the universe and in all.

    From this shabad I get that Omniscient is the wisdom or truth that forms the basis of all and that pervades everywhere timelessly.

    From this shabad I get that Omnipotent is a reflection of all that happens per the creator’s truths and wisdom that we may have minuscule knowledge of but it has raison d'etre.

    I stand corrected and all errors are mine. What do you think?

    Sat Sri Akal.
