When Jesus Prayed for Me (and You)

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message. (John 17:20, NIV)

Did you catch that? Jesus while here on earth prayed for us. For us!!

And this is what he prayed:

  1. That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you.
  2. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.
  3. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity.
  4. Then the world will know that you sent me
  5. And have loved them even as you have loved me.
  6. Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am,
  7. And to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.
  8. “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me.
  9. I have made you known to them,
  10. And will continue to make you known
  11. In order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.” (John 17:25, NIV)

Have you accepted the answers to that prayer; the prayer that Jesus gave on your behalf? Why or why not?

Prayer – Lord, help us step into the answer of the prayers that Jesus prayed for us. Amen.
