Bible: John 17:20-26

Jesus Prays for Believers Everywhere

17:20I am not praying 1  only on their behalf, but also on behalf of those who believe 2  in me through their testimony, 3  17:21 that they will all be one, just as you, Father, are in me and I am in you. I pray 4  that they will be in us, so that the world will believe that you sent me. 17:22 The glory 5  you gave to me I have given to them, that they may be one just as we are one 17:23 I in them and you in me – that they may be completely one, 6  so that the world will know that you sent me, and you have loved them just as you have loved me.

17:24Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, 7  so that they can see my glory that you gave me because you loved me before the creation of the world 8 . 17:25 Righteous Father, even if the world does not know you, I know you, and these men 9  know that you sent me. 17:26 I made known your name to them, and I will continue to make it known, 10  so that the love you have loved me with may be in them, and I may be in them.”
