John 17:18-26 (Gospel)

18
As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.
19
And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.
20
I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word;
21
that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
22
And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one:
23
I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.
24
Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.
25
O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me.
26
And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.
