This is the true Lord’s prayer! What we have in Matthew 6 and Luke 11, that is known as “The Lord’s Prayer”, should be called “The Apostles’ Prayer”. Jesus would never pray, “Forgive us our sins” — he never sinned! No, this prayer in John 17 is the real Lord’s Prayer. It’s the final conversation that Jesus had with His Father before He went to the cross. Jesus knew exactly what was going to happen to Him and still, the last request He has is for His followers, His true believers.
Jesus just finished preparing His disciples for His death, telling them that He was going to prepare a place for His followers that we could be where He is (John 16). Now, let’s read this heartfelt, personal prayer that is meant not just for Jesus’ followers back then, but ALL His followers until His Glorious Appearing. Think about it! In the final moments before His arrest, Jesus prays for us!
That’s right! The King of kings and Lord of lords, loved us SO much that His final words to His Father were about us….
If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…
Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.
Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…
“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Jesus is coming back soon! Are you ready?
