Jesus Prays for All Believers

In my devotion time this morning, I came across a passage I had never really paid attention to before.  Did you know that right before Jesus was arrested He prayed for believers?  I’m sure I have read the passage before but, for some reason, it didn’t stick.  This morning, the fact that Jesus would pray for all believers right before he was arrested and put to death was such a blessing – literally a blessing!  Let Jesus’ prayer wash over you.  Take his words to heart and let them spur you on in your walk of faith!  God Bless~Break of Dawn


John 17:20-26

Jesus Prays for All Believers

20 “My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.

24 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.

25 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. 26 I have made you[a] known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”
