Jesus Prayed for Unity

A person’s dying request is a window into their heart. It reveals what they think is most important. Just before His arrest and crucifixion, Jesus prayed a prayer that contained His dying wish for His church. While He could have asked for the Church’s military or political success, their financial well-being, wisdom or success, He instead asked for their unity. Join us for Part Three of “One” and learn how prayer affects our relationships and how our relationships can affect our prayers.

Scripture Reading

“I have manifested your name to the people whom you gave me out of the world. Yours they were, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.  Now they know that everything that you have given me is from you.  For I have given them the words that you gave me, and they have received them and have come to know in truth that I came from you; and they have believed that you sent me.  I am praying for them. I am not praying for the world but for those whom you have given me, for they are yours.  All mine are yours, and yours are mine, and I am glorified in them.  And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.

John 17:9-11
