Message from Phil Adams, Principal JH/SH & Central Elementary

“I have given them your word, and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth.

"I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

John 17:14-21 English Standard Version

Jesus prayed for me. That is an amazing idea to wrap my brain around.

James 5:16 says, “…the prayer of a righteous person has great power...”

None was more righteous than Jesus. His prayer for us had and continues to have great power. I take comfort in that.
