I am praying not only for these disciples but also for all who will ever believe in me through their message. I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me.
I have given them the glory you gave me, so they may be one as we are one. I am in them and you are in me. May they experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love them as much as you love me.
Unity of mind, heart, and purpose is one of the most difficult things to achieve. We so easily break into factions and and seek to dominate and control one another. Let today be a turning point for me begin seeing others as you see them. Give me a spirit of unity toward all those who seek to follow you and a spirit of reconciliation for those who are far from you.
