“I do not pray for these only, but also for those who believe in me through their word, that they may be all be one; even as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” ~ John 17:20-21
In today’s Gospel, our Lord Jesus prays to his Father for every human present and future. He prays for us to become one in Him just as He and his Father are one in each other. Jesus prays for us to become a family of God. What a magnificent gift! Jesus desires for us to gather around him as the sheep gather around the shepherd. Therefore, let’s always pray for each other to remain a member of God’s family. That we, like good brothers and sister, build each other up and help each other stay within our Father’s ever watchful sight.
