John 17 is such an amazing chapter... this is Jesus praying! So powerful. I honestly am at a loss for words on this chapter. I could probably try to write something about each and every verse. But, maybe what makes the most sense is for you to re-read this chapter again. Do you see Jesus praying for you in this chapter?
Bible.org's commentary on today's John readings are extensive! They've divided this chapter up into 3 commentaries, which shows the depth of what's going on in this chapter. I recommend you take a few minutes to check out each of these commentaries. The first commentary titled "The High Priestly Prayer of Jesus: Part I" is at this link, "Part II" is at this link, and "Part III" is at this link.
YouTube: Our readings in John today reminded me of the Sanctus Real song "Pray:"

Please join us in memorizing and meditating on three verses of Scripture today: "After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." John 17:1-3 NIV
Prayer Point: Pray that you know our Father God, the only true God. Pray that you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, God's Son whom He sent to save us. Pray and rejoice if you will have eternal life. Pray for those in your life that don't yet know Jesus, that they will accept him as their Lord & Savior.
