Jesus Prayed For You

Following my Morning Prayer, I grabbed a cup of coffee, and scrolled through the Newsfeed on Face Book. When I came upon a friend’s post asking this question, “Did you know that Jesus prayed for you? Go check it out in John 17.” I was curious and grabbed my Bible and read John 17. I was blown away in that Our Lord Jesus prayed for us before his arrest and crucifixion.

How did I miss this for all these years? I had heard the Scriptures so many times regarding the Last Supper, Crucifixion, and the Resurrection, but somehow I had missed the middle part on the night Jesus prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. I can tell you one thing, when my husband or family prays for me I am overwhelmed and touched by their words. So when I read John 17, I had felt the same way.

Here are some things to take away on John 17 regarding prayer and the significance of praying for one another.

I hope you realize that you are loved. You were important enough to Jesus, that he had some last words to say to the Father on your behalf. As you read John 17, my hope is you will feel the love and embrace of our Savior Jesus Christ today!
