A Prayer for the Gang (Part 1) – Jn. 17:1-12

Prayer is an interesting thing. There are different ways to pray, too. You have those emergency prayers: you’re in a bind and you don’t have time to think. You just need help. You have those casual prayers: praying for a meal or saying a quick word in the car before beginning a road trip. Then there are those heart-felt prayers where you just pour out your soul. It’s all good.

Jesus prayed one of those heart-felt prayers to conclude his final teaching session with the apostles & disciples. This lesson, which began way back in chpt. 13 at the washing of the feet, concludes in chpt. 17 with a prayer for Jesus’ followers. Even in the prayer there are lessons to be learned. So let’s take a look.
