"But I pray not for these alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their words, that they may all be one, even as you, O Lord, are one, that they may be one. Fathermay they also be one in us, so that the world may believe that you sent me.
Within hours of Jesus sacrificing himself for us on the cross, he took bread and wine with his disciples, washed their feet and gave them strength to withstand what was soon to come. The Gospel according to John details the details of these last moments and the great lessons Jesus manifested before his arrest and subsequent sacrifice on the cross.
Jesus Christ prayed for you, for me, even for Himself, for all believers in the whole world. He prayed for mankind, for all religious people, He asked God for unity among the human race and that all would remember God and Him in the same way He remembers them. The main objective of this experience was to save all men and women and to make them one with God and with Him.
