The disciples finished a meal filled with memories as their minds went back to the Passover, when God had rescued Israel from bondage. Only this dinner was different because Jesus brought new meaning to the bread, saying that it represented His body and to the cup, which symbolized His blood. Shortly after the meal ended, either in the Upper Room or on the way to Gethsemane, Jesus moved from preaching in John 13-16 to prayer in John 17. This is truly “The Lord’s Prayer” not to be confused with the “Model Prayer”. It is the longest recorded prayer in Scripture so, we are breaking it into 3 sections. Last week, we focused on the first part of this powerful prayer in verses 1-5. The main take-away was: If you can’t do something for God’s glory, then you shouldn’t do it at all.
