Bible: John 17:1-11

Jesus Prays for the Father to Glorify Him

17:1 When Jesus had finished saying these things, he looked upward 1  to heaven 2  and said, “Father, the time 3  has come. Glorify your Son, so that your 4  Son may glorify you 17:2 just as you have given him authority over all humanity, 5  so that he may give eternal life to everyone you have given him. 6  17:3 Now this 7  is eternal life 8 that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, 9  whom you sent. 17:4 I glorified you on earth by completing 10  the work you gave me to do. 11  17:5 And now, Father, glorify me at your side 12  with the glory I had with you before the world was created. 13 

Jesus Prays for the Disciples

17:6I have revealed 14  your name to the men 15  you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, 16  and you gave them to me, and they have obeyed 17  your word. 17:7 Now they understand 18  that everything 19  you have given me comes from you, 17:8 because I have given them the words you have given me. They 20  accepted 21  them 22  and really 23  understand 24  that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 17:9 I am praying 25  on behalf of them. I am not praying 26  on behalf of the world, but on behalf of those you have given me, because they belong to you. 27  17:10 Everything 28  I have belongs to you, 29  and everything you have belongs to me, 30  and I have been glorified by them. 31  17:11 I 32  am no longer in the world, but 33  they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them safe 34  in your name 35  that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are one. 36
