Read John 17:6-15
[Jesus prayed] “Now I am departing from the world; they are staying in this world, but I am coming to you. Holy Father, you have given me your name; now protect them by the power of your name so that they will be united just as we are.” – John 17:11 (NLT)
While seated now at the right hand of God, Jesus’ constant mission is to intercede for us, and so he models that for us here, praying for his disciples, that they would be united and be protected, and that their witness would bear fruit. Let us be about that same thing, continually asking for God to unite and protect us as we fulfill the Great Commission.
