John 17:20 ” My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message…”

On the night that Jesus was betrayed and arrested He spent time encouraging and praying with His disciples. In Chapter 17, verses 1-5 Jesus prayed for Himself, in verses 6-19 He prayed for His disciples, and in verses 20-26 He prayed for you. Yes, He prayed for you! Jesus specifically beseeched His Father on our behalf, praying into the future for all those who would come to a place of saving faith in Him by way of the Gospel Message. Think of it…before you knew Him, Jesus was praying for you.
