Because Of Faith In Christ

And Jesus said unto them: Pray on;
nevertheless they did not cease to pray.

And he turned from them again,
and went a little way off
and bowed himself to the earth;
and he prayed again unto the Father, saying:

Father, I thank thee that thou hast purified those
whom I have chosen, because of their faith,
and I pray for them, and also for
them who shall believe on their words,
that they may be purified in me,
through faith on their words,
even as they are purified in me.

Father, I pray not for the world,
but for those whom thou hast given me
out of the world, because of their faith,
that they may be purified in me,
that I may be in them as thou, Father, art in me,
that we may be one, that I may be glorified in them.
