The Prayer of Jesus

17After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, "Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you.G5023G2980G2424G2532G1869G846G3788G1519G3772G2532G2036G3962G5610G2064G1392G4675G5207G2443G4675G5207G2532G1392G4571 2For you have given him authority over everyone. He gives eternal life to each one you have given him.G2531G1325G846G1849G3956G4561G2443G1325G166G2222G3739G3956G846G1325G846 3And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.G1161G3778G2076G2222G166G2443G1097G4571G3441G228G2316G2532G2424G5547G3739G649 4I brought glory to you here on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.G1473G1392G4571G1909G1093G5048G2041G3739G1325G3427G2443G4160 5Now, Father, bring me into the glory we shared before the world began.G2532G3568G3962G1392G4771G3165G3844G4572G1391G3739G2192G3844G4671G4253G2889G1511 6"I have revealed you to the ones you gave me from this world. They were always yours. You gave them to me, and they have kept your word.G5319G4675G3686G444G3739G1325G3427G1537G2889G4674G2258G2532G1325G846G1698G2532G5083G4675G3056 7Now they know that everything I have is a gift from you,G3568G1097G3754G3956G3745G1325G3427G2076G3844G4675 8for I have passed on to them the message you gave me. They accepted it and know that I came from you, and they believe you sent me.G3754G1325G846G4487G3739G1325G3427G2532G846G2983G2532G1097G230G3754G1831G3844G4675G2532G4100G3754G4771G649G3165 9"My prayer is not for the world, but for those you have given me, because they belong to you.G1473G2065G4012G846G2065G3756G4012G2889G235G4012G3739G1325G3427G3754G1526G4674 10All who are mine belong to you, and you have given them to me, so they bring me glory.G2532G3956G1699G2076G4674G2532G4674G1699G2532G1392G1722G846 11Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, you have given me your name; now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are.G2532G3765G1510G3765G1722G2889G2532G3778G1526G1722G2889G2532G1473G2064G4314G4571G40G3962G5083G1722G4675G3686G846G3739G1325G3427G2443G5600G1520G2531G2249 12During my time here, I protected them by the power of the name you gave me. I guarded them so that not one was lost, except the one headed for destruction, as the Scriptures foretold.G3753G2252G3326G846G1722G2889G1473G5083G846G1722G4675G3686G3739G1325G3427G5442G2532G3762G1537G846G622G1508G5207G684G2443G1124G4137 13"Now I am coming to you. I told them many things while I was with them in this world so they would be filled with my joy.G1161G3568G2064G4314G4571G2532G5023G2980G1722G2889G2443G2192G1699G5479G4137G1722G846 14I have given them your word. And the world hates them because they do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.G1473G1325G846G4675G3056G2532G2889G3404G846G3754G1526G3756G1537G2889G2531G1473G1510G3756G1537G2889 15I'm not asking you to take them out of the world, but to keep them safe from the evil one.G2065G3756G2443G142G846G1537G2889G235G2443G5083G846G1537G4190 16They do not belong to this world any more than I do.G1526G3756G1537G2889G2531G1473G1510G3756G1537G2889 17Make them holy by your truth; teach them your word, which is truth.G37G846G1722G4675G225G4674G3056G2076G225 18Just as you sent me into the world, I am sending them into the world.G2531G649G1691G1519G2889G2504G649G2504G649G846G1519G2889 19And I give myself as a holy sacrifice for them so they can be made holy by your truth.G2532G5228G846G5228G1473G37G1683G2443G846G2532G5600G37G1722G225 20"I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.G1161G3756G2065G4012G5130G3440G235G4012G2532G4100G1519G1691G1223G846G3056 21I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.G2443G3956G5600G1520G2531G4771G3962G1722G1698G2504G1722G4671G2443G846G2532G5600G1520G1722G2254G2443G2889G4100G3754G4771G649G3165 22"I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one.G2532G1391G3739G1325G3427G1473G1325G846G2443G5600G1520G2531G2249G2070G1520 23I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.G1473G1722G846G2532G4771G1722G1698G2443G5600G5048G1519G1520G2532G2443G2889G1097G3754G4771G649G3165G2532G25G846G2531G25G1691 24Father, I want these whom you have given me to be with me where I am. Then they can see all the glory you gave me because you loved me even before the world began!G3962G2309G2443G2548G3739G1325G3427G5600G3326G1700G3699G1473G1510G2443G2334G1699G1391G3739G1325G3427G3754G25G3165G4253G2602G2889 25"O righteous Father, the world doesn't know you, but I do; and these disciples know you sent me.G2532G1342G3962G2889G1097G3756G1097G4571G1161G1473G1097G4571G2532G3778G1097G3754G4771G649G3165 26I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them."G2532G1107G846G4675G3686G2532G1107G2443G26G3739G25G3165G5600G1722G846G2504G1722G846
