The Final Week
The Prayer of Love
And a lot of scholars call this prayer: Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer, because in this prayer Jesus is interceding for His church just like a High Priest in the Old Testament would have interceded for God’s people.
And so, in the vital prayer, just days before His crucifixion, Jesus was praying for the Father to protect the church from those dangers.
But here’s the deal: Satan can’t touch you IF you stay close to God.
Because when you quote Scripture…you’re quoting God. You can’t get a higher authority than God.
Jesus prayed that we would be unified: One church, with one message, and one Savior.
More often congregations are torn apart because of conflicts between members…and those conflicts can escalate because other members take sides.
