Imagine this, the Son of the Almighty God, the Creator of all things, stood in a street and prayed for you.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
When Jesus says, “I pray for them,” He means that He is praying for those who have believed on Him. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then Jesus is praying for you. That doesn’t mean that the Lord does not love the lost. He so loved the world that He came to die on a cross for their sin. But this prayer was about the people who would take the good news of the gospel of Christ to the world.
What did Jesus pray for?
13 And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.
It was for joy that Jesus endured the cross. Jesus wanted that same joy to fill the souls of his saints. His joy could not be full if their cup was not full too. So, he prayed that "they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves."
