One of the most important prayers in the entire Bible is the high priestly prayer in the 17th chapter of John. This prayer was prayed by Jesus just after the Lords Supper. First Jesus prayed for himself, then Jesus prayed for his apostles, and finally Jesus prayed for all believers to come.

            This is truly a heartfelt and spirit filled prayer. Each of us as believers can benefit from a deeper study of these passages. Over the next thirty days I will make a humble attempt to plumb the depths of these scriptures. Hopefully we will find truths that will not only improve our Christian walk, but will draw us closer to our Lord.

            As we draw closer to our Lord we will have a greater understanding, not only this great prayer but of all the scripture. With this understanding we can not only enrich our lives, but also the lives of those around us.

 

Dear Lord:

            Give me an understanding of these passages and how they apply to my life. The wisdom of how to apply these truths and benefit from there meaning.

In Jesus name I pray. Amen
