Jesus prayed the intercessor prayer, he talked to the father with confidence just before the prayer and in confirmation to him going to be with the father-God-as where he was “before the world was.”
“These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said,
Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self the glory which I had thee before the world was.
I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them to me; and they have kept thy word. Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me be one, as we are.” John 17 v1-11 AKJV
Lord, this day is yours. Our prayers are lifted to you this day for our own. Those who you have blessed our lives with and are about your Love for others, I pray a special prayer. I thank you this day for all that you have done. I thank you for the boldness of faith you have given us and to understand all the humility in our existence that amplifies your presence on this earth and to us as individuals. Bless this day, O Lord. Amen
