This is a short series of expository messages on the prayer of the Lord Jesus Christ recorded in John 17. Michael Milton has written in a way that will be encouraging and uplifting to any Christian. Maybe you have heard missionaries and the pastor and church officers prayed for by name, along with those who are sick or in special difficulties. Like most Christians, you don’t really qualify for any of these categories, and perhaps you have wondered, who prays for me? These messages give a surprising and thrilling answer in an easily read book that you will want to return to again and again.
This deep, deep theology of the deep, deep love of God in Christ is here clearly and passionately unfolded by a masterful scholar and pastor. While no one can see to the bottom of the depths of this vast divine love, Dr Milton’s study will stir passions and reflections to look as far as one can into God s eternal and infinite love for his people in Christ.

It is an amazing thing to enter into the Holy of Holies with the Lord Jesus and hear Him bare his heart and speak face to face with His Heavenly Father. It is an amazing thing to hear the Lord Jesus sum up His work on earth in prayer, when you realize that work was foreordained from the foundation of the world (1 Peter 1:20). It is an amazing thing to hear the Lord Jesus praying to the Father when you realize that He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of his nature, upholding the universe by his word of power (Hebrews 1:3). Dr. Michael Milton wonderfully takes us into these profound mysteries.
