Jesus not only prayed for those who were with Him in The Garden, He also prayed for us.

He prayed that we would all be one with The One.  

Tonight as I was listening to the song, In The Garden, I remembered my mother singing it to me.  As I closed my eyes and walked back down memory lane, I saw her in a beautiful garden.  She was singing that song.

But then to my surprise, I found others in that garden … those who are with me now and those I love, but no longer see.  They were all singing, “He walks with me and He talks with me and He tells me I am His Own.”

We are one.  Because we sing in different parts of the choir does not mean we are separate.  The One connects us all!

I invite you to close your eyes, listen to this song and take a stroll through The Garden with God and see who else is there.  (I share the link for the music, not the visual tribute to Elvis!)

Jesus said,

“My prayer is not for them alone. 

I pray also for those who will believe in Me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as You are in Me and I am in You.

May they also be in Us so that the world may believe that You have sent Me.

I have given them the glory that You gave Me, that they may be one as We are One — I in them and You in Me —+so that they may be brought to complete unity. 

Then the world will know that You sent Me and have loved them even as You have loved Me.”

John 17:20-23
