John 17:1-5

Jesus Prays for His Disciples 1After Jesus had spoken these words, he looked up to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son so that the Son may glorify you,2since you have given him authority over all people, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him.3And this is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.4I glorified you on earth by finishing the work that you gave me to do.5So now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had in your presence before the world existed.
