John 17:20-26

Text: John 17:20-26

Take time today to rest in the knowledge of God’s boundless grace and reflect on Scripture below.

“I pray not only for these,
but also for those who believe in Me
through their message.
May they all be one,
as You, Father, are in Me and I am in You.
May they also be one in Us,
so the world may believe You sent Me.
I have given them the glory You have given Me.
May they be one as We are one.
I am in them and You are in Me.
May they be made completely one,
so the world may know You have sent Me
and have loved them as You have loved Me.
Father,
I desire those You have given Me
to be with Me where I am.
Then they will see My glory,
which You have given Me
because You loved Me before the world’s foundation.
Righteous Father!
The world has not known You.
However, I have known You,
and these have known that You sent Me.
I made Your name known to them
and will make it known,
so the love You have loved Me with
may be in them and I may be in them.”
-John 17:20-26 HCSB

    What an AWESOME verse for today! I spent my morning participating in my church’s prayer walk, surrounding and praying for our city, and this speaks so much to that experience! I love the way God reaches us through so many different means when He wants us to get the message.

    Father,

    This whole prayer just strikes me as BEAUTIFUL! It is Jesus heart laid out before it and who is on His heart us! His people and the world. Those who are His and those who would be His. May we be one as sister’s in Christ that the world may know that Jesus is indeed God’s son. May we be one with one another in our local churches that our neighbor’s my know God loves them just as He first loved His one and only son. May our local church be one with all other churches with in our communities that our cities may know that Jesus is the son of God. May the universal church cross divisions, repent, receive healing and become one that the world may know God’s love. This is my prayer today!

    One of the most soothing things in all my pain is knowing that Jesus is ALWAYS praying for us. It’s so comforting to know he is interceding every minute. Spurgeon says of how we do not know what calamities and temptations we’ve been delivered from because of Jesus praying for us. <3

    I love the unity here on SRT! I’ve never really thought about it before, but I believe there is such a true community in Christ here because we are starting with God’s word first. What a blessing SRT continues to be for me! Thank you to the She Reads Truth Team for all you do!!
