The Lord's Prayer for His People
- Robert Traill
Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am; that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me: for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world. —John 17:24
Robert Traill’s treatment of Christ’s intercessory prayer for His people is a masterpiece of Puritan experiential doctrine. Mining the depths of John 17:24, Traill discovers the comforts of the doctrine of election, the blessing of our hope of heaven, and the believer’s delight in the glory of Christ—all founded on the immovable love of the Father for His Son. Traill’s exposition is full of practical application, careful to address both believers and unbelievers alike.
