Thankful Thursdays

I am thankful Christ stop and took the time to pray for me even on His way to the cross.

"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.
"Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. "Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them." John 17:20-26

Amen. These words kept ringing in my ears. His Spirit calls for unity. What a prayer for us in this generation of faction and division. I thank too for His loving prayers for us. Thanks for posting this timely prayer. Shalom!
