Jesus Prays!

On this day, which to us is known as good Friday, I wanted to share one of Jesus' last prayers. This prayer was for Himself, as He was praying to the Father, but it wasn't just a prayer, but a message to all of mankind, letting them know the only way to inherit eternal life was through Him.

As we start the weekend of the crucifixion and resurrection, take the time to thank the Father for His holiness, thank the Son for His sacrifice, and open you hearts to the Holy Spirit, that He may come and reside in you through Christ.

John 17:1-5 NKJV
1Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son also may glorify You,  2 as You have given Him authority over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as You have given Him.  3 And this is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.  4 I have glorified You on the earth. I have finished the work which You have given Me to do.  5 And now, O Father, glorify Me together with Yourself, with the glory which I had with You before the world was.
