I Have Prayed For Thee by Del Parson

READ:

Jesus raised his eyes to heaven and said,”Father, the hour has come.Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you,just as you gave him authority over all people,so that your son may give eternal life to all you gave him.Now this is eternal life,that they should know you, the only true God,and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do.Now glorify me, Father, with you,with the glory that I had with you before the world began.”I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world.They belonged to you, and you gave them to me,and they have kept your word.Now they know that everything you gave me is from you,because the words you gave to me I have given to them,and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from you,and they have believed that you sent me.I pray for them.I do not pray for the world but for the ones you have given me,because they are yours, and everything of mine is yours and everything of yours is mine,and I have been glorified in them.And now I will no longer be in the world,but they are in the world, while I am coming to you.”

–Jn 17:1-11a

REFLECT:

In today’s Gospel we see Jesus speak with his whole heart as he prays to God the Father. Jesus is showing all of us God’s love for him and in return his love for God the Father, who is the heart of his very being. We see that God’s love doesn’t end but continues to be with Jesus right to the end, even on the Cross, giving his everything; his life.

RESPOND:

Today Pray 1 Our Father.
