I pray you are being blessed with these prayers. We all need encouraging
during these trying times. While sitting here the Lord changed what I was going
to give you today, to what He wants you to know. How awesome He is!
We as children, all at one time or another, were asked to learn the Lord’s Prayer
as quoted in Matthew 6:9-13 and/or Luke 11:1-13. But if we remember Jesus
said, ‘this is how you should pray, ‘Our Father…but His prayer for us is written
in the book of John, chapter 17:9-26:
“I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given
Me, for they are Yours.
And all Mine are Yours, and Yours are Mine, and I am glorified in them.
Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You.
Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they
may be one as We are.
While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Your name. those whom You
gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost accept the son of perdition, that
the Scripture might be fulfilled.
But now I come to you, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have
My joy (John 15:11) fulfilled in themselves.
I have given them Your word; and the world hated them because they are not of
the world, just as I am not of the world.
I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should
keep them from the evil one.
They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.
Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. (which is Jesus; He is the Way,
the Truth and the Life, (John 14:6)
As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the
truth. (which is Jesus-Hebrews 10:10)
I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through
That they all may be one, as You Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also
may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just
as We are one;
I in them, and You in Me, that they may be made perfect in one, and that the
world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved
Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am,
(John 14:3) that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You
loved Me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father! The world has
not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.
And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with
which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.
WOW What a powerful prayer Jesus prayed over them, and it hold through to us
also; even to all who receive Him, till the end of the ages. If you read this and
received it, rejoice, because He loves us so much. There is so much that can be
preached and/or taught here, but as you see I have picked out four things I
really want you to see:
1)Jesus prayed for us, gave us His joy (John 15:11) no man or demon can take
away without our permission and gave us His peace (John 14:27).
2)That they would know Your love and declare Your word to the world; and
God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit would be glorified in the earth.
3)To accomplish the UNITY of the Holy Trinity. That we might become ‘one’, with
one in aim, goal, and purpose; to lift up Jesus. He is the Truth, the Word (John 1:
1,6), and the Light (John 8:12) sent into the world. Count the times did Jesus
mention ‘one’ ‘’unity’ in His prayer for us? See how important it is to Him and us.
4)We are not of this world anymore. Our DNA has been changed through His
blood. We are spiritual beings living in a natural body. We are here to let the love
of Jesus shine through us that others may see His glory; that is our goal, that is
our purpose. We should rejoice, for greater is He that is in us then he who is in
the world (I John 4;4), He has conquered it all (I Cor. 15:55-57-Rev.1:18)
Now that Jesus has gone back to heaven, sitting at God’s right hand,
interceding for us night and day (Romans 8:34); we are the light of the world
unto all men (Matthew 5:31-16).
To gain the whole world we must be unified, that means together in purpose
and goal to lift Jesus higher and higher.
Jesus said, ‘If I be lifted up I will draw all men unto Me.’ (John 12:32). When
Jesus prayed that prayer He didn’t put us in categories, such as Baptist,
Methodist, Pentecostal or united whatever; He said, ‘whosoever shall call upon
My name shall be saved,’ or as He says it in
Romans 10:9-10: that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and
believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation.
So, we see, it is not man that draws, we water and plant but Jesus gives the
increase through His Holy Spirit; as it shines through each one of His children.
Now if you believed in your heart and spoke this prayer above, you are washed
clean by the blood of Jesus, set free, risen from death to life in Him. Confess
you are saved, born again, forgiven and on your way to heaven. Or if you
rededicated your life to Him fresh and new, we would love to glorify the Lord
with you. Praise God Hallelujah!
Please if you prayed this prayer, send me a note on Messenger and let me know
so I may rejoice with you and keep you in our prayers.
Thank you and God bless you all.
