A Message from God’s Word

Gospel of John 17

“Jesus Prays”

John 17:1 – Jesus’ Prayer for All Believers: “These words spake Iesus, and lift vp his eyes to heauen, and said, Father, the houre is come, glorifie thy Sonne, that thy Sonne also may glorifie thee.” 1611 KJV

The Father sent the Son to this physical realm that we call earth for the purpose of our salvation, from the beginning of the scriptures this is the witness of God’s Word of Truth to those Jesus walked among until the time that he returns. Those that he chose and he taught these Truths to believed and passed on this Word and it continues to be passed on to those who also believe the testimony of God’s word. This chapter of John is Jesus praying on earth to his heavenly Father for those he was among at the time he offered the prayer and for those that have come to believe throughout the ages to us today, and for those that will follow until his second coming. 

Jesus walked among the people and chose twelve men to entrust his message for all the ages that were to come and God our Father blessed all that he did as he fulfilled the prophecies of the Old Testament. Jesus did not accomplish his mission and his ministry on his own, he prayed and sought the Father in prayer at every turn. One of the most common events that occurred during this time of teaching, healing, and ministering to others is that he would step away from those that surrounded him to be alone and seek his Father in prayer. How important was this to all, that he did? I would suggest that it was everything, without the time he spent with God in prayer the rest of his actions would have floundered and never produced the fruit that it was intended to accomplish.

If prayer was so important for Jesus to accomplish the insurmountable odds that he faced, why would we not also consider how important prayer should be in our life? Is the excuse that we just have too much going on day to day that we can put off prayer to the tomorrow that never comes reason enough to not pray? Think about it!
