“I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one,  I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know that you have sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. Father, I desire that those also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory, which you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. “Righteous Father, the world does not know you, but I know you; and these know that you have sent me. I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:20-26, NRSV)

Did you know that the night before Jesus was tried and crucified He prayed for you?

“I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word,”

Right there, Jesus prayed for you. This chapter of John is known as the high priestly pray of Jesus, where He prayed for himself, then the 12, then all who would come to believe.

You were on His mind for all of eternity.

He prayed for you!
