Jesus in Prayer
March 10, 2013 Series: The Passion
Topic: Sermons Passage: John 17:1–17:26
Hours before he was arrested, tried, and condemned to die, Jesus prayed for us. John 17 records what has become known as the "high priestly prayer" of Jesus. In this message, Mike Osborne identifies three things for which he prayed. From these three things flow courage for spiritual battle, perseverance in holiness, and determination to maintain unity in the body of Christ. No wonder John Knox wanted this prayer read as he lay dying.
