Shortly before Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross, He went to God and prayed one of the most stunning prayers ever recorded in history. Fortunately, God saw it fit that we should be able to read it and He had John write it down in the 17th chapter of his Gospel. Read it below . . .
1 These words spake Jesus, and lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour is come; glorify Thy Son, that Thy Son also may glorify Thee:
2 “As Thou hast given Him power over all flesh, that He should give eternal life to as many as Thou hast given Him.
3 “And this is life eternal, that they might know Thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou hast sent.
4 “I have glorified Thee on the earth: I have finished the work which Thou gavest Me to do.
5 “And now, O Father, glorify Thou Me with Thine own self with the glory which I had with Thee before the world was.
