Holy Week #4 - March 28, 2013

"Father, the time has come.  Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.  ... And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began."  (John 17:1, 5)

(Read John 17:1-26)

This is called "Jesus' High Priestly Prayer".  So it is important to note what Jesus prays for.  He prays for glory (a revelation of the truth that He is the great "I AM") and He prays for unity (that they may be one), and He links the glory to the unity.

So what should we make of this?  If Jesus as our High Priest is praying this prayer, then what should be our greatest concern as God's children?  What other things is Jesus praying, and how can we begin to pray those same prayers today?
