The Greatest Prayer: John 17 is one of most precious chapters in the Bible. We get to hear the Son, our Savior, pray to the Father. And so chapter 17 is like a wide-open window into the heart of Jesus. We get to listen in as he expresses his longing and desires and hopes. We get to listen in as he prays for us. Only hours away from the unimaginable agony that he knew was coming he prays this "High Priestly prayer"--the greatest prayer--a prayer of triumph and love and joy. It's a prayer that he intends to fill us with comfort and assurance. That's why he lets us listen in.
