B. Life's Prayer
1. The Son to Be Glorified
That the Father May Be Glorified
1 These things Jesus spoke, and alifting up His eyes to heaven, He said, bFather, the hour has come; 1cglorify Your Son that the Son may dglorify You;
2 Even as 1You have given Him aauthority over all flesh to give 2eternal blife to all whom You have cgiven Him.
3 And this is 1eternal life, that they may aknow You, the only btrue God, and Him whom You have 2csent, Jesus dChrist.
4 I have 1glorified You on earth, finishing the awork which You have given Me to do.
5 And now, 1aglorify Me along with Yourself, Father, with the bglory which I had cwith You dbefore the world was.
2. The Believers to Be Built Up into One
a. In the Father's Name by the Eternal Life
6 I have manifested 1Your aname to the men whom You bgave Me out of the world. They were cYours, and You gave them to Me, and they have kept Your 2word.
7 Now they have come to know that all that You have given Me is from You,
8 For the awords which You gave Me I have bgiven to them, and they received them and knew truly that I ccame forth 1from You, and they have believed that You dsent Me.
9 I aask concerning them; I do not ask concerning the world, but concerning those whom You have bgiven Me, for they are cYours;
10 And all that is Mine is Yours, and aYours Mine; and I have been 1glorified 2in them.
11 And I am no longer in the world; yet they are ain the world, and I am bcoming to You. 1Holy Father, ckeep them 2in Your dname, which You have given to Me, that they may be eone even as We are.
12 When I was with them, I akept them in Your bname, which You have given to Me, and I guarded them; and cnot one of them 1dperished, except the eson of 1perdition, that the fScripture might be fulfilled.
13 But now I am acoming to You, and these things I speak in the world that they may have My bjoy made full in themselves.
b. In the Triune God
through Sanctification by the Holy Word
14 I have agiven them Your 1word, and the 2world has bhated them, because they are cnot 3of the 2world even as dI am not 3of the 2world.
15 I do not ask that You would take them out of the world, but that You would akeep them 1out of the hands of the 2bevil one.
16 They are anot of the world, even as I am not of the world.
17 1aSanctify them 2in the truth; Your 3word is truth.
18 As You have 1asent Me into the world, I also have 1bsent them into the world.
19 And for their sake I 1sanctify Myself, that they themselves also may be asanctified in truth.
20 And I do not aask concerning these only, but concerning those also who believe into Me through their word,
21 That they all may be 1aone; even as You, Father, are bin Me and I cin You, that they also may be din Us; that the eworld may believe that You have fsent Me.
c. In the Divine Glory
for the Expression of the Triune God
22 And the 1aglory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be 2bone, even as We are cone;
23 I ain them, and You bin Me, that they may be perfected into cone, that the world may know that You have dsent Me and have 1loved them even as You have eloved Me.
24 Father, concerning that which You have agiven Me, I desire that they also may 1be with Me bwhere I am, that they may behold My cglory, which You have given Me, for You dloved Me ebefore the foundation of the world.
3. The Father to Be Shown Righteous
in Loving the Son and His Believers
25 1Righteous Father, though the world has not known You, yet I have aknown You, and these have known that You have bsent Me.
26 And I have made Your aname known to them and will yet make it known, that the 1blove with which You have bloved Me may be in them, and I cin them.
