John 17:1–11

Jesus Prays to Be Glorified

17 After Jesus said this, he looked toward heavenh and prayed:

Father, the hour has come.i Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you.j For you granted him authority over all peoplek that he might give eternal lifel to all those you have given him.m Now this is eternal life: that they know you,n the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.o I have brought you gloryp on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.q And now, Father, glorify mer in your presence with the glory I had with yous before the world began.t

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

I have revealed youa u to those whom you gave mev 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 mew and they accepted them. They knew with certainty that I came from you,x and they believed that you sent me.y I pray for them.z I am not praying for the world, but for those you have given me,a for they are yours. 10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine.b And glory has come to me through them. 11 I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world,c and I am coming to you.d Holy Father, protect them by the power ofb your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be onee as we are one.f
