John 17

Jesus Prays for Himself

 1After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: “Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

 6“I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. 7Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. 8For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. 9I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours. 10All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And glory has come to me through them. 11I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name—the name you gave me—so that they may be one as we are one. 12While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled. 13“I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them. 14I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world. 15My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one. 16They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. 17Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth. 18As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. 19For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified.

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, 21that 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. 22I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: 23I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world 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. 26I have made you 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.”


Awaken: March 1st

A great night last night!  Mel and Matt Strom brought us all some delicious kolaches from the Czech Stop in West, Texas!  We began our worship with several songs.  After some singing Mel Strom continued our Lenten series on prayer.  We talked about why we pray.  Then we took some time to pray and Patrick shared a song with us called, “Whatever You’re Doing” by Sanctus Real.  After some prayer time we closed with a song.  We still have some prayer journals left from last week.  If you would like one you can get one from Patrick’s office.  Next week we will continue our series on Prayer.  Invite a friend to come and worship with us next week.  See you all next week and check back here for the Prayer board that will be up later today!

Awaken: February 22nd

Last night at Awaken we talked about prayer.  We kicked off the night with several songs and then Matt Strom brought us the message for the night.  Matt talked with us about prayer and a little bit about the upcoming Lenten season.  We looked at the book of Joel in the old testament and a little at the Sermon on the Mt. from the book of Matthew.  We talk about how we pray and why we pray.  We shared some prayers too.  Matt encouraged us all this Lenten season to spend some time in prayer each day and then to journal our prayers.  Matt gave us all a prayer journal that we can use to write down our prayers.  (We still have a few of these left if you did not get one and would like to do some prayer journaling.)  This will be helpful for us to remember what we need to pray for and to see how God answers our prayers.  This will kick off a Lenten series on Prayer that we will continue through  to the Easter Sunrise Service on Easter morning.  Come and join us at Awaken next Sunday!  Tell a few friends about it and then bring a couple of them with you when you come.

The Prayer Board from last night will be up on this blog later today, so check back soon and pray with us.
