I have glorified you on the earth
    by faithfully doing everything you’ve told me to do.
So my Father, restore me back to the glory
    that we shared together when we were face-to-face
    before the universe was created.”[a]

Jesus Prays for His Disciples

“Father, I have manifested who you really are
    and I have revealed you[b] to the men and women
    that you gave to me.[c]
    They were yours, and you gave them to me,
    and they have fastened your Word firmly to their hearts.
