READ: John 17

THINK: Reread verses 20-26 aloud slowly, remembering that this is Jesus praying for you (“those who will believe in me”), and substitute your name when you read them or they.

If you need to, read those verses one more time before considering these questions:

1. What are you most excited about Jesus praying for you or saying about you?

  • your witness for Jesus
  • to be one heart and mind with other followers of Jesus
  • to be one heart and mind with God and Jesus
  • that Jesus has given you glory
  • that Jesus is in you
  • that you’ll be mature in oneness
  • that you’ll give the world evidence that God sent Jesus
  • that Jesus made the very being of God known to you
  • that God’s love for Jesus is in you
  • that Jesus is in you

2. Why?

PRAY: Thank Jesus for praying for you. Talk to him about the parts of his prayer that you found most meaningful. Repeat Jesus’ words and pray his prayer for his followers in the world today.

LIVE: Walk around today with the sense that Jesus is in you and that this was always his plan!
