    I think this is an awesome prayer. No one will ever love us more than Jesus. I would truly be lost without me. He is my saviour and my LORD. May I PRAISE HIM all the days of my life.
  • Scott Wichert
    Sanctify them by the word of Jesus Christ, the living and active word that reaches to the bone marrow of all who believe. Abraham was accounted righteous by his faith in God's word. We must pray for the changing power of God's love to heal sin sickness disease and death.this is the victory that Christ Jesus-accomplished on the crossthrough the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • Miriam
    John 17 clearly shows us that Jesus pleaded for our case then as he is still doing now before our Father.Jesus extended the love and blessings from God to whoever believes,seeks and acknowledges Him.

    Jesus further asks God to bless his followers while still in the world not to take us out of it but to keep evil away from them.
    God's love is so manifested by Jesus,Glory to Him
  • Ppastor Troy
    Never noticed before but seems like the first part of the prayer Jesus is praying for His disciples. Then vs 20 stars praying for those that believe their word to be one. . wow does that include me.
  • Valerie Jones
    Breathtaking. This is true Agape' Love. Thank God for Jesus that day by day we can walk in this same love and truly have this kind of love for one another.
