JESUS’ PRAYS
John 17:1-26 
Introduction: As we have journeyed through John’s majestic Gospel, we have encountered many glorious portraits of the Lord Jesus Christ. We have seen His heart of compassion on display as He healed the sick, we have seen His power revealed as He raised the dead and fed the hungry, we have seen His grace revealed as He saved the sinner. Every portrait that each chapter given to us has been an encouragement and a blessing and increasing our Faith!  This chapter is no exception! When we come to chapter 17, we find ourselves standing on holy ground. In these verses, the Holy Spirit of God gives us access into the Garden of Gethsemane as Jesus pours His heart out to His Heavenly Father.  Hebrews 3:1; 6:20 We Are Told To Pray in Jesus’ Name! What Kind of Prayer Did Jesus Pray?
I. HIS PRAYER HAD AN UPWARD FOCUS.                               
     A.  The Father’s Glory  John 17:1 and 4  That purpose was to reveal God to men — John 14:9, Colossians 1:15, Hebrews 1:3, John 1:18, John 14:6,I Timothy 2:5, Acts 4:12 

     B.  The Father’s Gift  John 17:4  “...I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. “John 6:44, John 6:65,John 6:37     

     C. The Father’s Grace   John 17:6-12, I Corinthians 15:10, Ephesians 2:8–9, John 15:5

II. HIS PRAYER HAD AN INWARD FOCUS 

     A.  He Prayed for Assistance   John 17:1, John 18:3                                                                                                                                    
     B.  He Prayed About His Accomplishment   John 17:2-4        
     C.  He Prayed About His Assurance     John 17:5   
III. HIS PRAYER HAD AN OUTWARD FOCUS     
     A.  He Prayed for Their Preservation   John 17:6-11
I     Peter 1:5, II Corinthians 5:17, Ecclesiastes 3:14, John 10:28
     B. He Prayed for Their Protection John 17:12-15 
      Psalm 34:7, Hebrews 13:5; Matthew 28:20,Colossians 3:3 
     C.   He Prayed for Their Purity   John 17:16-19
II Corinthians 6:17
I.   V. HIS PRAYER HAD AN ONWARD FOCUS  
A. He Prayed for Our Harmony  John 17:20-23
Notice the Lord’s will for His people: I  Corinthians 1:10
Philippians 1:27, Philippians 2:1, I Thessalonians 5:13. I Peter 3:8, I Corinthians 14:33
     B. He Prayed for Our Homegoing   John 17:24 
     C. He Prayed for Our Hearts   John 17:25-26 
 I Corinthians 13:1–8, John 13:35
LOVE is a supernatural quality GOD gives US so OTHERS can see HIM in US.
Conclusion: Know this that Christ’s prayers are always heard and answered  —  John 11:41-42 
The question that remains is are they being fulfilled in your life and in the life of this church? A quick review is in order.    Are you saved? It is His desire that you come to know Him.
2. Is there unity in the church? It is His desire that there be. Are we walking in love, one to the other as we should? That is His prayer for us.  Has the Lord touched areas of your life that need to be dealt with this morning? If so, then I beg you to come to Him and allow Him to have His way in your heart and life right now. Will you do as He would have you to?

3.) Because We Are Weak in Our Flesh Matthew 26:41
II. NOTICE THREE WAYS  (IF ALL THREE ARE APPLIED) TO HELP US  STOP REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES OVER AND OVER.
