Encouragement: The Messiah prayed for YOU

Do you truly believe the four gospels?  Do you believe every word that was written by the four men who chose to record the words we would read that would tell us about the life of Yahshua, the Messiah?

If you truly believe the words of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, then know that Yahshua prayed for you.

There is a prayer recorded by John that most people overlook because most of it sounds like he's praying for his disciples that were with him.  He prayed this the night before he was put to death.  However, there is one key phrase that expands this prayer beyond the pages on which it is written:
John 17:20 - Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word. 
Yahshua said he was praying, not JUST for the disciples with him, but for anyone who believes in him because of their words.

So how did you answer the first questions?  If you affirm that you believe in Yahshua because of the words of these men, then Yahshua was also praying for you.

Now go back and read John 17 knowing that He had YOU in mind when He prayed to the Father.
