John 17 (Jesus Prayer)

Saturday March 26, 2022

John 17:1-5 is Jesus’ prayer to His Father. In 17:3 He prayed that we may know the Father and Jesus Christ, which is eternal life. Eternal life Scriptures: John 3:16; 3:36; 5:24; 6:47; 10:27-29; 11:25-26. His followers were willing to give their lives. Base your faith on the Word of God, not on experiences. Jesus’ second prayer was that we may be one as He and the Father are one (John 17:11). We were crucified with Christ. John 16:7, 13-15; Romans 8:11; Galatians 5:16; Philippians 3:10-14; Titus 2:11-15; 3:3-7. Jesus is praying that you be in the world, but not of it. The third prayer is in John 17:13- that we may have Jesus’ joy. Nehemiah 8:10; Hebrews 12:1-3; Psalm 16:11; John 14:23; John 15:11-12; Philippians 2:1-2, 16-17. His fourth prayer, in John 17:13 was that God should keep us from the evil one. John 10:10; Matthew 6:13; Luke 10:19-20; Jude 16-21. His fifth prayer was that God would sanctify us by His truth (John 17:17). 2 Timothy 3:16; Revelation 19:13; John 14:6; John 4:23-24. Are you willing to give your life for the truth? What are the signs of the end of the age? Take heed not to be deceived. Stay in the truth of the Word, and be accountable to each other. The sixth prayer is oneness in John 17:21-23. The seventh prayer is that we would be with Him, and that we might behold Jesus’ glory. Jesus wants to share His glory. Romans 5:1-2, 8:16-24; Philippians 3:20-21; 2 Corinthians 3:18, 4:16; 5:17. Look to Jesus, and you will become like Him, glory to glory. The final prayer is that the love with which God loved Jesus may be in us, and Jesus in us. Love casts out all fear. Give others the Word of God. They need the fruit of the Spirit. Love is the doctrinal knowledge of truth. Jesus never compromised truth for love. Agree with Jesus’ prayers in John 17, and you can have them, 100% guaranteed.
