‘The ‘real’ Lord’s Prayer’ (John 17:1-26)

Rev Philip Burns concludes this series on prayer with this message on the prayer of Jesus in John 17. In what is called His ‘High Priestly prayer’, Jesus sought to glorify God by praying for the protection, the sanctification and the unity of his disciples and those who would believe their testimony in later years. Jesus not only prayed these things then, but also continues to intercede on behalf of His people now, so that we might be in the world and living effectively as witnesses to His truth.
