Sunday Sermon II: Jesus prays for His people's protection & sanctification

John 17:11-19: Jesus prayed for His people:

-Holy Father, PROTECT THEM in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one
-While I was with them, I protected them in your name that* you have given me. I guarded them, and not one of them was lost except the one destined to be lost,* so that the scripture might be fulfilled
-I am not asking you to take them out of the world, but I ask you to protect them from the evil one. They do not belong to the world, just as I do not belong to the world.
-Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
