Prayer for the Son

1THESE things spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son may glorify thee: 2even as thou hast given him authority over all flesh, that with regard to all those whom thou hast given him, he should give to them eternal life: 3and this is eternal life, that they should know thee the only true God, and him whom thou hast sent, Jesus, the Messiah. 4I have glorified thee upon earth: I have completed the work which thou gavest me to perform. 5And now, Father, do thou glorify me with thyself in the glory which I held with thee before the world was.

Prayer for the Disciples

6I have made known thy name to the persons whom thou gavest me out of the world: for thee they had a being, and to me thou hast given them; and thy word have they kept. 7Now have they known, that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are from thee. 8For the declarations which thou gavest to me I have delivered to them; and they have received them, and have known assuredly that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou hast sent me. 9I entreat for them: I make no request for the world; but for those thou hast given me; for they are thine. 10And all mine are thine, and thine mine; and I have been glorified in them. 11And now no longer am I in this world, but these are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father! preserve them for thy name?s sake whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. 12When I was with them in the world, I preserved them by thy name: those whom thou hast given me have I guarded, and not one of them is perished, except the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13But now I am coming to thee; and I am speaking these things in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. 14I have given them thy word and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 15I entreat not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest preserve them from the wicked one. 16They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. 17Sanctify them by thy truth: thy word is truth. 18As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I sent them into the world. 19And for them I devote myself, that they also might be sanctified by the truth.

Prayer for All Believers

20And not for them do I make request only, but also for those who shall believe in me through their word; 21that all may be one; as thou, Father, in me, and I in thee, that these also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22And I have given them the glory, which thou hast given me; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23I in them, and thou in me, that they may be perfected into one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me. 24Father, those whom thou hast given me, I will that where I am they may also be with me; that they may behold my glory, which thou gavest me: because thou hast loved me before the foundation of the world.

25Righteous Father! though the world hath not known thee, yet I have known thee, and these have known that thou hast sent me. 26And I have made known to them thy name, and will make it known: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.
