In the second section of the high priestly prayer Jesus prays for those that are closest to him. The disciples had spent three years traveling with Jesus. Each had seen many miracles and had heard Jesus proclaim to be the one sent by God many times. So Jesus prayed for these men God had given him
As Christians today are we willing to look to this example? Being willing to invest are time in the people that God places in our lives. Teaching and praying for the close circle of friends that we can mentor and teach about the Lord the same way Jesus prayed and taught his disciples.
Place a small group of men and women around me so I can teach and mentor each of them. Giving me the wisdom and courage to be able to lead them investing in each as Jesus invested in his disciples.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
