“Jesus Prays For Believers”

Key Verse

  Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word” (John 17:20).

Text — John 17:20-26


Prayer is an integral part of our relationship with God. Jesus in our text made intercessory prayer. Gordon Cove rightly said that, “Praying people in the Bible were intercessors. Abraham pleaded for Sodom and Gomorrah. Samuel prayed all night for Saul, and continually interceded for the nation.” Jesus Christ knew the importance of prayer and made a duty of it. 

From the prayer of Jesus for believers, we have some important lessons to learn. First, believers, of today, are included in the prayer of Christ to the heavenly Father. So, you are a fortunate person. Second, believers are to be united because Christ has prayed for us and also empowered us with His glory. So, we must do our part to make Christ’s request real in our relationship with other believers. Third, it is clear that true believers in Christ will spend eternity with Him in heaven. Finally, the prayer of Jesus Christ reveals the love of God for you, a believer. So share His love with everyone you meet, either sinners or saints. Jesus still prays for the Church.


Jesus still prays for the Church
