John 17:1-26, NLT
The Prayer of Jesus
1After saying all these things, Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son so he can give glory back to you.
6“I have revealed you*17:6 Greek have revealed your name; also in 17:26. to the ones you gave me from this world. They were always yours. You gave them to me, and they have kept your word.
9“My prayer is not for the world, but for those you have given me, because they belong to you.
13“Now I am coming to you. I told them many things while I was with them in this world so they would be filled with my joy.
20“I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message.
22“I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one.
25“O righteous Father, the world doesn’t know you, but I do; and these disciples know you sent me.
