The Way: Pray For Unity Among Believers

Jesus continued praying in the presence of his chosen witnesses (202).

“Father, I also pray for all those who will believe in me, because of the message of these witnesses.  Please unite all witnesses & believers with us & with one another.  Please use this unity to inspire the rest of the world to believe that we love them, too.

“I’ve given these friends of mine the same glory you gave me, so that they can be united completely, just as you & I are united completely.  Their united witness will help the world know that you sent me & that your love is offered to all people.

“You have given these friends to me, and I want them to be with me wherever I am.  I want them to see my glory — the glory you gave me because you loved me before the world was made.

“The world doesn’t know you, but I know you & these witnesses know that you sent me. I have made you known to them & I will continue to do so, in order that our love may keep them united.”


(202) John 17:20-26
