Jesus begins his farewell discourse. He reminds us not to let our hearts be troubled and declares himself to be the only way to God the Father.
Here is a link to the livestream video:
Dear Heavenly Father,
You sent your Son Jesus to us so that we would have a clear path to be reconciled to you. We thank for giving him to us as the way, the truth and the life.
We pray that you would empower us with your Spirit and help us to walk in obedience to your word. We ask your help in fully receiving your peace, so that we would not let our hearts be troubled.
And we pray all of these things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that this is what he would pray for if he was here with us.
Dear God and Father,
We know that what you say is true and that in fact Jesus is the truth, which you sent to this earth. When he speaks of our sin he always speaks correctly. Help us to accept that we continuously need your grace and the forgiveness you offer through Christ.
Help us also to avoid any kind of spiritual elitism. In other words, help us to avoid any kind of thinking that we are too good or too smart to need a simple, childlike faith in Christ to be saved.
Finally, please give us those rivers of living water that Christ said would flow from within us thanks to the work of your Holy Spirit.
In Jesus Christ,
