John 17:1-9 NCV

1 After Jesus said these things, he looked toward heaven and prayed, "Father, the time has come. Give glory to your Son so that the Son can give glory to you.
2 You gave the Son power over all people so that the Son could give eternal life to all those you gave him.
3 And this is eternal life: that people know you, the only true God, and that they know Jesus Christ, the One you sent.
4 Having finished the work you gave me to do, I brought you glory on earth.
5 And now, Father, give me glory with you; give me the glory I had with you before the world was made.
6 "I showed what you are like to those you gave me from the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have obeyed your teaching.
7 Now they know that everything you gave me comes from you.
8 I gave them the teachings you gave me, and they accepted them. They knew that I truly came from you, and they believed that you sent me.
9 I am praying for them. I am not praying for people in the world but for those you gave me, because they are yours.
