Someone Prayed for You Today!
Isn’t it nice to know that somebody prayed for you? It kind of gives you a good feeling inside, to know that someone took the time to remember you at the Father’s throne. But, what if that someone was Jesus? How great is that! Well, He did. Just before He was to be arrested, Jesus lifted His head to heaven and prayed – first, for Himself; then the Disciples; and, finally, for each one of us:
“I pray not only for these (the Disciples), 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)
Jesus Christ, Savior, Messiah, Son of the Living God – prayed for you. Then, He died for you. Then, He rose from the grave for you. Surely he is worthy of the best praise and worship we can offer!
