John 17:24 


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."

Jesus in His prayer in John 17 made two very startling requests to His Father in heaven - 

                 1.   that His followers be WITH HIM

                  2.  that His followers SEE HIS GLORY

We need to ask ourselves if we had fulfilled Jesus' deepest wish, made just before he was betrayed by those He loved.  

Did we spend enough time to be alone with Him?

Did we look upon His Glory when we pray?

Or are we so busy with His work that we have forgotten about him?

Is His ministry more important to us than His Person?

==================================================== 

When I was a teenager, I used to notice that my pastor would lock himself in his rooms on some afternoons to pray. He would not take any calls or schedule any meetings. I later found out he was praying. He saw prayer as the strength of his ministry. He is 89 now, retired but still preaches and visits old parishioners.
