Favorite Scripture

"My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me." In John 17:20-21 Jesus prayed for all of us who are believers now.
