The Spoken Word Christian Church https://thespokenwordchurch.com

It is an amazing thing to think that the God of the Universe would love us so much that He would be willing to live for us, die for us, conquer the grave for us, as well as PRAY FOR US! Listen today as Pastor Bob opens up the Bible to John Chapter 17:6-9, and continues to unpack this beautiful prayer of Jesus, as He turns to His Father in Heaven on behalf of His disciples.

Our Bible text for Today’s Message is from John 17:6-9

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed:

“I have revealed you[a] to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you. For I gave them the words you gave me and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you, and they believed that you sent me. I pray for them. I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me, for they are yours.
