The Prayer of Jesus

1When Jesus had said this, he raised his eyes to heaven and said, “Father, the hour has come. Give glory to your son, so that your son may glorify you,

2 just as you gave him authority over all people,b so that he may give eternal life to all you gave him. 

3 Now this is eternal life,c that they should know you, the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ. 

4I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do. 

5Now glorify me, Father, with you, with the glory that I had with you before the world began.
6“I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world. They belonged to you, and you gave them to me, and they have kept your word.

7Now they know that everything you gave me is from you, 

8because the words you gave to me I have given to them, and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from you, and they have believed that you sent me. 

9I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for the ones you have given me, because they are yours,

10and everything of mine is yours and everything of yours is mine, and I have been glorified in them.

11And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world, while I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are. 

12When I was with them I protected them in your name that you gave me, and I guarded them, and none of them was lost except the son of destruction, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled.

13But now I am coming to you. I speak this in the world so that they may share my joy completely.

14I gave them your word, and the world hated them, because they do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.

15 I do not ask that you take them out of the worldj but that you keep them from the evil one. 

16They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world. 

17Consecrate them in the truth. Your word is truth.

18As you sent me into the world, so I sent them into the world.

19And I consecrate myself for them, so that they also may be consecrated in truth. 

20“I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word,

21so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.

22And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, 

23I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me. 

24Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am* they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

25Righteous Father, the world also does not know you, but I know you, and they know that you sent me.

26I made known to them your name and I will make it known,* that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them.”

Chapter 8:12-20
The Light of the World

12Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

13So the Pharisees said to him, “You testify on your own behalf, so your testimony cannot be verified.” 

14Jesus answered and said to them, “Even if I do testify on my own behalf, my testimony can be verified, because I know where I came from and where I am going. But you do not know where I come from or where I am going.

15You judge by appearances,* but I do not judge anyone.

16And even if I should judge, my judgment is valid, because I am not alone, but it is I and the Father who sent me.

17Even in your law it is written that the testimony of two men can be verified.

18I testify on my behalf and so does the Father who sent me.”

19So they said to him, “Where is your father?” Jesus answered, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you knew me, you would know my Father also.”

20He spoke these words while teaching in the treasury in the temple area. But no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come.

Chapter 9:2-8
The Transfiguration of Jesus

2After six days Jesus took Peter, James, and John and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves. And he was transfigured before them, 

3and his clothes became dazzling white, such as no fuller on earth could bleach them. 

4Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses, and they were conversing with Jesus. 

5 Then Peter said to Jesus in reply, “Rabbi, it is good that we are here! Let us make three tents: one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.” 

6He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified. 

7Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them; then from the cloud came a voice, “This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.” 

8Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone but Jesus alone with them.

2 Thessalonians
Chapter 2:1-17
Christ and the Lawless One

1We ask you, brothers, with regard to the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our assembling with him,

2not to be shaken out of your minds suddenly, or to be alarmed either by a “spirit,” or by an oral statement, or by a letter allegedly from us to the effect that the day of the Lord is at hand.

3Let no one deceive you in any way. For unless the apostasy comes first and the lawless one is revealed, the one doomed to perdition, 

4 who opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship, so as to seat himself in the temple of God,* claiming that he is a god— 

5do you not recall that while I was still with you I told you these things? 

6And now you know what is restraining, that he may be revealed in his time. 

7For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work. But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene.

8And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord [Jesus] will kill with the breath of his mouth and render powerless by the manifestation of his coming,

9the one whose coming springs from the power of Satan in every mighty deed and in signs and wonders that lie,

10and in every wicked deceit for those who are perishing because they have not accepted the love of truth so that they may be saved. 

11Therefore, God is sending them a deceiving power so that they may believe the lie, 

12that all who have not believed the truth but have approved wrongdoing may be condemned. 

13But we ought to give thanks to God for you always, brothers loved by the Lord, because God chose you as the firstfruits for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in truth.

14To this end he has [also] called you through our gospel to possess the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

15Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours.
16May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us everlasting encouragement and good hope through his grace, 

17encourage your hearts and strengthen them in every good deed and word.

Chapter 1:1-6

1Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God,

2which he promised previously through his prophets in the holy scriptures,

3 the gospel about his Son, descended from David according to the flesh,

4but established as Son of God in power according to the spirit of holiness through resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord.

5 Through him we have received the grace of apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith, for the sake of his name, among all the Gentiles,

6among whom are you also, who are called to belong to Jesus Christ;

7to all the beloved of God in Rome, called to be holy. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Chapter 8:31-59
Jesus and Abraham

31Jesus then said to those Jews who believed in him, “If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples, 

32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34Jesus answered them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.

35A slave does not remain in a household forever, but a son* always remains.

36So if a son frees you, then you will truly be free. 

37I know that you are descendants of Abraham. But you are trying to kill me, because my word has no room among you. 

38 I tell you what I have seen in the Father’s presence; then do what you have heard from the Father.”
39 They answered and said to him, “Our father is Abraham.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works of Abraham. 

40But now you are trying to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God; Abraham did not do this. 

41You are doing the works of your father!” [So] they said to him, “We are not illegitimate. We have one Father, God.”

42Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and am here; I did not come on my own, but he sent me.

43Why do you not understand what I am saying? Because you cannot bear to hear my word. 

44You belong to your father the devil and you willingly carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of lies.

45But because I speak the truth, you do not believe me. 

46Can any of you charge me with sin? If I am telling the truth, why do you not believe me?

47Whoever belongs to God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not listen, because you do not belong to God.”
48The Jews answered and said to him, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and are possessed?” 

49Jesus answered, “I am not possessed; I honor my Father, but you dishonor me. 

50I do not seek my own glory; there is one who seeks it and he is the one who judges.

51Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps my word will never see death.”

52(So) the Jews said to him, “Now we are sure that you are possessed. Abraham died, as did the prophets, yet you say, ‘Whoever keeps my word will never taste death.’ 

53Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? Or the prophets, who died? Who do you make yourself out to be?”

54Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is worth nothing; but it is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God.’ 

55You do not know him, but I know him. And if I should say that I do not know him, I would be like you a liar. But I do know him and I keep his word.

56Abraham your father rejoiced to see my day; he saw it and was glad.

57So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old and you have seen Abraham?”

58 Jesus said to them,i “Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.” 

59So they picked up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid and went out of the temple area.


Chapter 54
Confident Prayer in Great Peril

  1For the leader. On stringed instruments. A maskil of David,
2when the Ziphites came and said to Saul, “David is hiding among us.”


3O God, by your name* save me.
By your strength defend my cause.
4O God, hear my prayer.
Listen to the words of my mouth.
5Strangers have risen against me;
the ruthless seek my life;
they do not keep God before them.b



6God is present as my helper;c
the Lord sustains my life.
7Turn back the evil upon my foes;
in your faithfulness, destroy them.d
8Then I will offer you generous sacrifice
and give thanks to your name, LORD, for it is good.
9Because it has rescued me from every trouble,
and my eyes look down on my foes.e


EFESO 4:17-18  5:15-17 HEBREWS 4"7

17Sa pangalan ng Panginoon, ito ang sinasabi ko sa inyo: huwag na kayong mamuhay tulad ng pamumuhay ng mga walang pananampalataya sa Diyos. Walang kabuluhan ang kanilang iniisip, 18at wala silang pang-unawa. Dahil sa kanilang kamangmangan at katigasan ng ulo, wala silang bahagi sa buhay na kaloob ng Diyos.
15Kaya't mag-ingat kayo kung paano kayo namumuhay. Mamuhay kayong tulad ng matatalino at di tulad ng mga mangmang. 16Samantalahin ninyo ang bawat pagkakataon na kayo'y makagawa ng mabuti sapagkat punung-puno ng kasamaan ang daigdig ngayon. 17Huwag kayong maging hangal. Unawain ninyo kung ano ang kalooban ng Panginoon.


"Tinatawag kayo ng Diyos sa pamamagitan ng Mabuting Balitang ipinahahayag namin sa inyo, upang makasama sa kaluwalhatian ng ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo."


"The lights of God and Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit and
Bible lights us all with the lights and
miracles of Mother Mary"
"keep faith"
