My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you 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. John 17:20-21 NIV
I love that Jesus prayed not only for his disciples but for all future believers right as he prepared for the cross. He promised us the Holy Spirit and interceded for our protection and unity in the church. Prayer works. Prayer changes things. Scripture says that we should always pray and look at Jesus praying and preparing for the coming storm. He was not doing this out of fear. Quite the opposite, He was showing us how to live in Faith. I see many people not taking advantage of the awesome opportunity we have to converse with God and engage Him in our daily lives. Stay Woke! Be prayerful. Make the most of this valuable opportunity.
