Jesus’ Prayer

A man prays as his hands clasp a Bible
“I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those You have given me, for they are Yours... My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message... 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.”—John 17:9, 20, 24 (NIV)
When you read John Chapter 17, you discover that Jesus prayed for protection, joy and unity for His followers. If you are feeling overwhelmed, say the above verse and take comfort in Jesus’ prayer. Know that He is on your side.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Jesus, your prayers are a great blessing to me.
