This coming Sunday we will take a second look at the record of Jesus great prayer in John 17. In our first look we discovered a presupposition truth which lead to principled prayer.
The presupposition here is that “the glory of God,” that is “the eternal perspective” is what we need. Prayer is the place where we see, or ought to be seeing the events of our history as they relate to God’s plan unfolding. Prayer is the place to seek a future that Glorifies God as priority. Prayer is the place where we can fight the present war with the goal of glorifying Jesus our Lord rather than easing our way through some meaning less living.
