I pray that __[your name here]____ and all who ever believe will all be one, just as You and I are one—as You are in me, Father, and I am in You. And may __[your name here]____ be in us so that the world will believe you sent me. I have given ___[say your name here and let it sink in]____ the glory you gave me, so __[your name here]___ and her fellow believers may be one as We are one. I am in __[your name here]___ and you are in me. May ___[your name here]___experience such perfect unity that the world will know that you sent me and that you love ___[your name here]___ as much as you love me.

Lord, the transforming power in Your love, grace, and reconciliation blows my mind once again.
