Bible: John 17:13-21

17:13 But now I am coming to you, and I am saying these things in the world, so they may experience 1  my joy completed 2  in themselves. 17:14 I have given them your word, 3  and the world has hated them, because they do not belong to the world, 4  just as I do not belong to the world. 5  17:15 I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but that you keep them safe 6  from the evil one. 7  17:16 They do not belong to the world 8  just as I do not belong to the world. 9  17:17 Set them apart 10  in the truth; your word is truth. 17:18 Just as you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world. 11  17:19 And I set myself apart 12  on their behalf, 13  so that they too may be truly set apart. 14 

Jesus Prays for Believers Everywhere

17:20I am not praying 15  only on their behalf, but also on behalf of those who believe 16  in me through their testimony, 17  17:21 that they will all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray 18  that they will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me.
