Prayer for the Son

1These wordes spake Iesus, and lift vp his eyes to heauen, and sayde: Father, the houre is come, glorifie thy sonne that thy sonne also may glorifie thee: 2As thou hast geuen hym power ouer all fleshe, that he shoulde geue eternall life, to as many as thou hast geuen him. 3This is lyfe eternall, that they myght knowe thee, the only true God, & Iesus Christe whom thou hast sent. 4I haue glorified thee on the earth: I haue finished ye worke, which thou gauest me to do. 5And nowe glorifie thou me, O father, with thine owne selfe, with the glory which I had with thee yer the worlde was.

Prayer for the Disciples

6I haue declared thy name vnto ye men, which thou gauest me out of ye world. Thyne they were, and thou gauest the me, and they haue kepte thy worde. 7Nowe they haue knowen yt al thinges whatsoeuer yu hast geuen me are of thee. 8For I haue geuen vnto them ye wordes which thou gauest me, and they haue receaued them, and haue knowe surely that I came out from thee, & they haue beleued, that thou dyddest sende me. 9I pray for them: I pray not for the worlde, but for them which thou hast geuen me, for they are thyne. 10And all myne are thyne, and thyne are myne, and I am glorified in them. 11And nowe am I not in the worlde, and they are in the worlde, and I come to thee. Holy father, kepe through thine owne name, the which thou hast geuen me, that they may also be one, as we are. 12Whyle I was with them in ye worlde, I kept them in thy name. Those that thou gauest me, haue I kept, and none of them is lost, but that lost chylde, that the scripture myght be fulfylled.

13Nowe come I to thee, and these wordes speake I in the worlde, that they myght haue my ioy fulfylled in them seues. 14I haue geuen them thy worde, and the worlde hath hated them, because they are not of the worlde, euen as I also am not of the worlde. 15I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the worlde: but that thou kepe them from euyll. 16They are not of the worlde, as I also am not of the worlde. 17Sanctifie them through thy trueth. Thy worde is the trueth. 18As thou diddest sende me into ye world, eue so haue I also sent the into ye world. 19And for their sakes sanctifie I my selfe, that they also myght be sanctified through the trueth.

Prayer for All Believers

20Neuerthelesse, I pray not for them alone: but for the also, which shall beleue on me through their preachyng: 21That they all may be one, as thou father art in me, and I in thee, and that they also may be one in vs: that ye world may beleue, that thou hast sent me.

22And the glorie which thou gauest me, I haue geuen them, that they may be one, as we also are one. 23I in them, and thou in me: that they may be made perfecte in one, and that the worlde may knowe that thou hast sent me, and hast loued them, as thou hast loued me. 24Father, I wyll that they which thou hast geuen me, be with me where I am, that they may see my glorie which thou hast geuen me. For thou louedst me, before the foundation of the world.

25O ryghteous father, the worlde also hath not knowen thee: But I haue knowen thee, and these haue knowen that thou hast sent me. 26And I haue declared vnto them thy name, and wyll declare it, that the loue wherewith thou hast loued me, may be in them, and I in them.
