Top  Previous  Next

Nov 9 11.23 I have glorified1 you by finishing what You gave me to do. Now glorify me with the glory I had with You before the world began. I revealed Your Name to those who are Yours, those You gave me out of the world, and they have kept Your word. They know that everything You gave me comes from You. Because I gave them the words You gave me and they accepted, they know I came from You and they believe You sent me. Im not praying for the world, but for those You gave me, for they are Yours. Everything mine is Yours, and everything Yours is mine, and Im glorified through them. As I am coming to You and leaving the world, Holy Father, while they remain in the world, so protect them by the power of Your name, which You gave me, that they may be one as We are one.2 While I was with them I kept them by Your name. To fulfill scripture, none has perished3 except the son of perdition.

Nov 10 Now I come to You, but I speak this while Im in the world, so that my fullest joy may be theirs. I gave them Your word and the world hated them. I dont ask that You remove them from this world, but that You keep them from the evil one. Neither they nor I am of this world. Sanctify them by the truth. Your word is truth. As You sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world. I sanctify myself for them that they may be sanctified by the truth.

Nov 11 I dont pray for these alone, but for those who will believe in me through their word. That they may be one, as You are in me, and Im in You, that they may also be in Us, so the world will believe that You sent me. The glory You gave me Ive given them, that they will be one, as We are one. I pray they may be brought into perfect unity, that the world will know You sent me, and that I loved them even as You have loved me.4 Father, I desire that those given me will be with me where I am, to see my glory which You gave me, because You loved me before the worlds creation. Righteous Father, though the world doesnt know You, I do, and they know that You sent me. I have revealed Your name to them and will continue to reveal it, so Your love for me may be in them, and I also may be in them.”
