The glory that you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me. Father, I desire that they also, whom you have given me, may be with me where I am, to see my glory that you have given me because you loved me before the foundation of the world. O righteous Father, even though the world does not know you, I know you, and these know that you have sent me. I made known to them your name, and I will continue to make it known, that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” (John 17:22-26)
Father, I long to be in perfect union with you. Thank you for giving me yourself and for making yourself known to me. I want to be where you are to behold your glory. Until then, please use me an an instrument of your will. Unite my heart that I would desire You. Instill in me a love for your commandments and purposes in this world. As you make yourself known to me, help me to make You known to others. I am still in desperate need of your redemption and restoration. Thank you for loving me and saving me from myself.
