John 17:3-13

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.
10 All I have is yours, and all you have is mine. And my glory is shown through them.
11 I am coming to you; I will not stay in the world any longer. But they are still in the world. Holy Father, keep them safe by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they will be one, just as you and I are one.
12 While I was with them, I kept them safe by the power of your name, the name you gave me. I protected them, and only one of them, the one worthy of destruction, was lost so that the Scripture would come true.
13 "I am coming to you now. But I pray these things while I am still in the world so that these followers can have all of my joy in them.
