Jesus prayed for you!

Did you know that you are a living, breathing answer to prayer?

You are a living, breathing answer to prayer.

The story of Easter – the death and resurrection of Jesus – may not be new to you, but isn’t it just like our God to use His Living Word to constantly teach you new things?

Did you know Jesus directly prayed for you?

In the book of John, chapter 17 describes in detail the prayer Jesus said to His heavenly Father just before He knew He would be arrested and sent to the cross. 

Jesus prayed and asked God for three things: 

1. Glory to the Son & the Father

Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. John 17:1-2

2. Protection & Unity for His Disciples

Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. John 17:11b

3. Belief for Future Generations

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. John 17:20b-21

How would you respond?

If you knew that soldiers were on their way and you would soon be sentenced to a gruesome and painful death, you’d be praying for your own safety, right?

Not, Jesus. Jesus, prayed for you!

You are the living, breathing future generation that Jesus tenderly prayed to God about.

As a believer, you are the disciple that Jesus fervently requests to know God’s love, protection, and unity.

You are who Jesus had in mind when He prayed this prayer:

 “Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world.  John 17:24

Jesus asked God for you to be where He is and because of His sacrifice – you can be.

One day you will sit with the man, who is himself God, who chose to pray for you.

Will you join The Family in praying like Jesus? 

Pray that God is glorified.

Pray that we may be united as believers in our mission to win more souls for Christ.

Pray that everyone who doesn’t know God will come across the right friend, the right song and the right radio station that will point them to their loving Savior.

Over 3 tons of PB&J donated!

The 2023 PB&J Drive results are in…

The Family wrapped up it’s first annual PB&J Drive. Thanks to your generous support over 6,000 pounds of peanut butter and jelly was collected to help families in need!

Fun Facts

  • 6,000 pounds = 3 tons of peanut butter & jelly. That’s A LOT of sandwiches!
  • In fact, that’s enough to make over 88,000 PB&J sandwiches.
  • 88,000 sandwiches is enough to feed a sold-out Lambeau Field game, and still have some left over!
  • If you laid out 88,000 sandwiches end to end, it would equal 7 miles of PB&J sandwiches.
  • If you decided to stack those same sandwiches on top of each other, it would be 1.38 miles (7290 feet) high. Which, by the way, is more than 5 Empire State Buildings stacked on top of each other!

Thank you for your generous support!

We are so thankful for your help “spreading the love” through our PB&J Drive. Your ongoing generosity and financial support to The Family helps make programs like this possible.
