28 Now, for a time you, also, will sorrow, but I will see you again and your hearts will rejoice. Your joy no man will take from you. In that day you shall ask me nothing.
29 Truly, truly I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name, He will give you. Heretofore you have asked nothing in my name. Ask and you shall receive that your joy may be fulfilled.
30 These things I have spoken to you in proverbs. But the time comes when I shall no longer speak to you in proverbs, but I shall show you plainly of the Father. At that day you shall ask in my name.
31 I say to you that I will pray to The Father, Himself, who loves you because I love you, because you have loved me, and believed that I come from God.
32 I come from The Father, I come into the world. Now I leave the world and return to The Father."
33 The apostles knelt down, saying "Rabbi, you have spoken to us plainly. Now we are sure that you know all things, that you can fulfill what any man should ask. We know without doubt you have come from God."
34 Jesus answered, "Do you now believe? Behold, The Hour comes! Yes! It now comes!"
"FATHER, THE HOUR HAS COME."
These words spoke Jesus and lifted up His eyes to Heaven. "Father, the Hour has come. Glorify Your Son, that Your Son may also glorify You.
2 As you have given Him power over all flesh that He should give eternal life to as many as you have given Him. This life is eternal that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, who you have sent.
3 I have glorified You on the Earth. I have finished the Work which You gave me to do. And now, oh, Father, glorify You me, with Your Own Self, with the Glory which I had with You before the world was. I have glorified Your Name to the men which you have given me out of the world. Yours they were. You gave them to me. They have kept Your Word.
4 Now they know that all things that You have given me are from You. For I have given to them the Word which You gave me.
5 They have received It, have come to know truly that I come out of You and they have believed that you DID send me.
6 I pray for them. I pray not for the world but for them which you have given me, for they are Yours, and worthy of You.
7 All mine are Yours, all Yours are mine. I am glorified in them.
8 Now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world. And I come to You, Holy Father. Keep through Your Own Name these who You have given me, that they may be one as We are.
9 While I was with them in the world I kept them in Your Name. Those that You gave me I have kept and none of them are lost, save the son of confusion, that the Scripture might be fulfilled. But I pray you, Oh Father, that even this one not be lost forever.
10 Now I come to You and these things I spoke in the world that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them Your Word and the world will hate them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of this world.
11 I pray that you would keep them from evil. They are not of the world as I am not of this world. Sanctify them through Your Truth. Your Word is Truth.
12 As You have sent me into the world, even so I must send them into the world and it troubles me. For their sake I sanctify myself, that they, also, might be sanctified through The Truth.
13 Nor pray I for these, alone, but for all of theirs, and all of those that shall believe in me through their teaching, that they all may be one, as You, The Father, and I are one, and I, in You, that they may be also one with Us, that the world may believe that You have sent me. The Glory which You give me I have given them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them, You in me, that they may be made perfect in The One.
14 That the world may know that You have sent me, and have loved them as You have loved me.
15 Father, will that they also, who you have given me be with me where I go, that they may behold my Glory which You have given me. For You loved me before the foundation of the world.
16 Let them, in their hour, come unto me, Oh Righteous Father. The world has not known You, but I have known You, and these have known that You have sent me. I have declared to them Your Name, and WILL declare it, that The Love with which You have loved me may be in them, and I in them. Oh, Father, even one of the fallen You have sent unto me, that he may bear witness unto me, and that I may be remembered even by his house. You have renewed our brotherhood and our friendship. Let his heart not be broken, oh Lord, when You use him for Your Purpose, but let him understand Your Will Be Done, and that it is by my blood that the houses of Heaven are reconciled. Let there be peace between our Children, always. Oh, Lord, Oh, Father, the Hour has come."
