July 24, 2013 Speaker: Joshua Fletcher
Topic: Sunday PM Passage: John 17:20–17:26
Jesus prayed momemnts after the last supper in the upper room just before he goes to the garden of Gethsemane. This is known as his high priestly prayer or his intercessory prayer. He prays for himself, then his disciples, and then for his church. For the church He prays for three purposes 1) that He and the Church become one 2) that the believers in the Church shall be in unity with each other and with God and 3) the believers in the church are to love others.
