Have you ever had an answered prayer? Have you ever wanted to be an answer to prayer? How about an answer to Jesus’ prayer? Well, you can be! And in one sense, if you are a follower of Christ, you already are.

As you prepare for our weekly gathering on May 28, please read John 17 focusing on verses 20-26. Ask yourself these questions…

  • Why does John include a whole chapter to Jesus’ prayer? Why is it placed here between chapter 16 and 18? How does chapter 17 flow into chapter 18?
  • What requests does Jesus make?
  • What kind of unity does Jesus have in mind? What is the source of this unity? What is the goal of this unity? How does that differ from the way Christianity unity is frequently portrayed?
  • What are the threats to Christian unity?
  • What promise does Jesus make in his prayer?

See you Sunday!
