I pray these things while I am still in the world so that these followers can have all of my joy in them. John 17:13
What Jesus dreamed of doing and what he seemed able to do were separated by an impossible gulf. So Jesus prayed.
We don't know what he prayed about. But I have my guesses… He prayed for the impossible to happen.
Or maybe I'm wrong. Maybe he didn't ask for anything. Maybe he just stood quietly in the presence of Presence and basked in the Majesty. Perhaps he placed his war-weary self before the throne and rested.
Maybe he lifted his head out of the confusion of earth long enough to hear the solution of heaven. Perhaps he was reminded that hard hearts don't faze the Father. That problem people don't perturb the Eternal One.
