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!
- Jesus prayed that we would be kept from the “evil one” (vs. 15-16)
- Jesus prayed that we would be separated from the world (vs. 17). We are to be set apart from evil and do good.
- Jesus prayed that we would represent Him as He sends us out to be His ambassadors.
- Jesus prayed that we would be a united example to the world (vs.21)
- 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!
