A Daily Prayer based on John 17

Heavenly Father, I thank you that you glorified the Son through his death and resurrection, and that he in turn has glorified you. Jesus brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave him to do, and now you have glorified him in your presence by restoring to him the glory he had with you before the world began. I pray that ______________________ and I also may bring glory to you by completing the work you have given us to do. I affirm that you have given Christ authority over all people, and that he has used that authority to give eternal life to all those you have given him. I thank you that we have received eternal life through our faith in him. Eternal life is to know you, the only true God, and to know Jesus Christ, whom you sent to us. I thank you for the privilege of being in a personal relationship with you and with your Son. Lord Jesus, you have revealed the Father to us and to all those he gave you out of the world. I know that we belong to him and that he has given us to you. May we accept your words and believe that you have given us the words that your Father gave you. Everything you have and have given to us comes from the one true God. May we know with certainty that you came from God, and believe that he sent you to us. I affirm that your Father is the one who has given us to you, because we ultimately belong to him. All you have is the Father’s, and all he has is yours because you are one with him. Father, I pray that glory may come to Christ through us as it did through your apostles. I ask you to protect us and keep us safe by the power of your name, the name you gave Christ. He has given us your word and the world at times hates us because we are identified with him. I pray that we will not be of the world any more than your Son was of the world. We do not pray that you will take us out of the world, but we do ask you to protect us from the evil one. Your word is truth, and I pray that you will sanctify us and set us wholly apart to do your will by the truth. I pray that we will set ourselves apart for you and your service, so that through the influence of our lives others may also be truly sanctified. Lord Jesus, we ask you to send us into the world just as the Father sent you into the world. Please direct us to those who are ready to receive your word. I pray, Heavenly Father, that I and all who follow your Son may be one, just as you and Christ are one. Just as you are in him and he is in you, so may we be in you so that the world will believe that you, the true and living God, are the one who sent Christ to us. I know that our divisions grieve you and block the advance of your kingdom. I thank you, Lord Christ, that you have given to us the glory that your Father gave you. May we be one, as you and the Father are one. May you be in us as the Father was in you. Please bring us to complete unity so that we may let the world know that God sent you and that the Father loves them even as he loves you. Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but your Son knows you and through him we have come to know that you are the one who sent him to us. I thank you, Lord Jesus, for making the Father known to us, and ask you to continue to make him known to us so that the love the Father has for you may also be in us and that you yourself may be in us. I thank you, Lord Jesus, that it is your desire that we may be with you where you now are and be able to see your glory. I pray that we will look forward to that day when we will see your glory, the glory the Father gave you because he loved you before the creation of the world. These things I pray in your name, amen.

Welcome

Never before in the history of our country has America faced a moral crisis like the one before us today. The foundations of our government are crumbling right before our eyes. Our churches are abandoning God, our families are in shambles. There is only one hope for restoration - the Lord Jesus Christ.
