The Prayer of Jesus

John 17:1-11a

Again, we hear the Gospel proclaimed on the Seventh Sunday of Easter. Jesus’ prayer seems to sum up what was, what is, and what will be. He was one with the Father before the world began. While on earth he remained one with the Father while glorifying and revealing the Father to the world. Now it is time for him to return to the Father.

Prayer: I pray for all Christian disciples. May we find courage when challenged. May we find joy in the truth.
