When Jesus Stopped to Pray

By Charles R. Swindoll


John 17

The hardest work we can do is “knee” work. We'll find anything else easier to do than pray. Yet Jesus not only told us that we “ought to pray and not to lose heart” (Luke 18:1), He showed us by praying Himself. After the last meal Jesus shared with His disciples but before the soldiers came for Him in Gethsemane, Jesus let us eavesdrop on His talk with the Father. Often called the High Priestly Prayer, John 17 is one of the most remarkable and longest intercessions in all of God's Word. From it, we can learn how to pray and get a glimpse into Jesus' great love for us.
