Jesus Christ’s Prayer in John 17 is called The High Priestly Prayer. He prayed as a High Priest. This prayer is in two (2) parts: 1. For the Shepherd and 2. For the Sheep

1. For the Shepherd

What the Father should do – Glorify the Shepherd.
“These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, the hour is come; glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee…And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.” 17:1,5

v. Sanctifying them (17:17)
vi. Perfecting them (17:23)
