Sermon: “Jesus Prays for God’s Glory” from Marc Swenson

Marc Swenson - January 8, 2023

Jesus Prays for God's Glory

This Sunday we’ll begin a new series called the Prayer of Prayers from John 17. Though this is not known as The Lord’s Prayer, it truly is as it is the longest recorded prayer in Scripture from the Son to the Father. When you think about prayer, what do your prayers represent? Don’t they represent the desires of your heart? Throughout this series, we will come to understand the things most dear to the heart of Jesus as we encounter this most beautiful and intimate prayer lifted up to his Heavenly Father. And we’ll find, that in the end, his prayer should be our prayer as well. Join us as we discover anew the heart of Christ.

Scripture References: John 17:1-5

From Series: "The Prayer of Prayers"

The prayer we call “The Lord’s Prayer” from Matthew 6 isn’t technically the Lord’s prayer. The prayer that begins, “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name…” is the prayer Jesus taught His disciples to pray. So, that prayer could better be referred to as “The Disciples’ Prayer.” The real Lord’s prayer—that is, the prayer Jesus personally prayed for us is found in John 17. There are four parts to this prayer: Jesus prays for God’s glory, Jesus prays for God’s people, Jesus prays for God’s church, and Jesus prays for God’s mission. In Jesus’ prayer, we see the depth of His love for us and His passion for His church. Join us as we hear Jesus pray the prayer of prayers!
