Finally in verses 20 through 26 Jesus prays for the ones who will follow the disciples. The ones who will believe because of the disciples words that were spoken and written. From the time of the original disciples to the believers of today, the ones who believe in Jesus, who know him as their Lord and Savior.
Through the written and spoken word, believers can strengthen their faith in the living word. Jesus is the living word and is still ready to intercede for us with the father as he was when he spoke on our behalf to the father.
Continue to intercede on my behalf with your father. The one and only true God, the creator of the universe, the name above all names. The one who holds me in palm of his hand. Give me the strength to continue to read and listen to your word so I may have a closer walk with you.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
