Read John 17:20-26 and think about these questions:
Listen. Jesus prays not only for his disciples, he prays for “those who will believe in me through their message”, which means he is praying for us. What specifically does he pray for us and why?
Respond. Think about Jesus’ prayer for us. Be personal and specific as you think about the following response questions. (Not all may apply to you.)
- How does Jesus’ prayer move you to obey God in a specific way?
- How are you challenged to trust God?
- How are you moved to pray? What will you pray for?
- How is God calling you to repent?
- How does this passage move you to love and worship God? How are you thankful for him?

Deeper Study. Jesus’ prayer for us comes within the context of a larger conversation he has with his Father on the night before his crucifixion. The entire prayer is recorded in John 17:1-26. Read the prayer slowly and think about the following questions:
- How would you describe Jesus’ relationship with his Father?
- What does Jesus ask for himself? For his disciples?
