The Lord’s Own Prayer (John 17:1-5)

In the scriptures we have a prayer that is commonly called, “The Lord’s Prayer.” When someone speaks about “The Lord’s Prayer” they are typically referring to the prayer recorded in Matthew 6:9-13. However, this is not the prayer of Jesus but a model prayer given to his disciples to teach them how to pray to the Father. John 17 is a unique paragraph for us to read because it records the Lord’s own prayer.  This is not a record of Jesus teaching how his disciples ought to pray. Rather, this is our Lord’s own prayer to the Father.
