All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. Glory has come to me because of my disciples.
"I will not remain in the world any longer. But they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name. It is the name you gave me. Keep them safe so they can be one, just as you and I are one.
"While I was with them, I guarded them. I kept them safe through the name you gave me. None of them has been lost, except the one who was sentenced to be destroyed. It happened so that Scripture would come true.
"I am coming to you now. But I say these things while I am still in the world. I say them so that those you gave me can have all my joy inside them.
I have given them your word. The world has hated them. This is because they are not part of the world any more than I am.
I do not pray that you will take them out of the world. I pray that you will keep them safe from the evil one.
"They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to it.
Use the truth to make them holy. Your word is truth.
You sent me into the world. In the same way, I have sent them into the world.
I make myself holy for them so that they too can be made holy in a true sense.
"I do not pray only for them. I pray also for those who will believe in me because of their message.
