John 17 is the Lord’s prayer. Jesus Himself humbly speaks to the Father. It is a sublime and powerful prayer God has answered and will continue to answer. Only Jesus can pray this prayer. Jesus prayed for Himself, His disciples then, and future believers. He prayed for you and me. God the Son, in His human incarnate form, prayed. It is a powerful prayer because the one who prayed is infinitely powerful. Jesus prayed and we are saved.
