Dear Lord Jesus,
We submit ourselves to you as our Savior, our Redeemer and our Lord. As the branches need the vine, we understand that our spiritual life depends completely on you. Without you we can do nothing.
We ask you to produce fruit in our lives by means of the Holy Spirit who indwells us. Let that fruit transform our personalities so that we become more and more like you.
Help us to be strong and faithful witnesses for you in the face of the world’s hatred. And let us experience your joy regardless of what we face here on earth.
In your name we pray,
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.

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.
The raising of Lazarus is the seventh and final sign in the first section of the Gospel of John. With it Jesus proclaims himself to be the resurrection and the life.
