How Jesus Prayed for Us

Good morning friend!

I as was reading John 17, I began to look at how Jesus prayed for us. Let me give you a few things that jumped out at me, and then let me encourage you to read John 17:15-24, and jot down a few things that jump out to you!

  1. Jesus prayed that we would be kept from the “evil one” (vs. 15-16)
  2. Jesus prayed that we would be separated from the world (vs. 17). We are to be set apart from evil and do good.
  3. Jesus prayed that we would represent Him as He sends us out to be His ambassadors.
  4. Jesus prayed that we would be a united example to the world (vs.21)
  5. Jesus prayed that we would experience his love and redemption from this world. (vs. 24)

Those are just a few thoughts on Jesus’ prayer that I’m thinking about, and I am so very grateful that Jesus set the example of a powerful and persistent prayer life for us to model. 

Have a great week!
