17 And it came to pass that He spake unto the multitude and commanded them that they should kneel down again upon the earth, and also that His disciples should kneel down upon the earth. 18 And it came to pass that when they had all knelt down upon the earth, He commanded His disciples that they should pray; 19 And behold, they began to pray, And they did pray unto Jesus, calling Him their Lord and their God. 20 And it came to pass that Jesus departed out of the midst of them and went a little way off from them and bowed Himself to the earth, And He saith: "Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast given the Holy Ghost unto these whom I have chosen, And it is because of their belief in Me that I have chosen them out of the world; 21 Father, I pray Thee that Thou wilt give the Holy Ghost unto all them that shall believe in their words; 22 Father, Thou hast given them the Holy Ghost because they believed in Me, And Thou seest that they believe in Me because Thou hearest them and they pray unto Me; And they pray unto Me because I am with them; 23 And now Father, I pray unto Thee for them, And also for all they which shall believe on their words, that they may believe in Me, that I may be in them as Thou, Father, art in Me, that we may be one." 24 And it came to pass that when Jesus had thus prayed unto the Father, He came unto His disciples, And behold, they did still continue without ceasing to pray unto Him; And they did not multiply many words, for it was given unto them what they should pray, And they were filled with desire. 25 And it came to pass that Jesus beheld them as they did pray unto Him, And His countenance did smile upon them, And the light of His countenance did shine upon them; And behold, they were as white as the countenance and also the garments of Jesus; 26 And behold, the whiteness thereof did exceed all the whiteness-yea, even there could be nothing upon earth so white as the whiteness thereof. 27 And Jesus saith unto them, "Pray on"; Nevertheless, they did not cease to pray. 28 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 these which I have chosen because of their faith; 29 And I pray for them, and also for them which shall believe on their words, that they may be purified in Me through faith on their words, even as they are purified in Me; 30 Father, I pray not for the world, But for them which Thou hast given unto 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." 31 And it came to pass that when Jesus had spake these words, He came again unto His disciples; And behold, they did pray steadfastly without ceasing unto Him; And He did smile upon them again; And behold, they were white even as Jesus. 32 And it came to pass that He went again a little way off and prayed unto the Father; And tongue cannot speak the words which He prayed, Neither can be written by man the words which He prayed; 33 And the multitude did hear and do bear record, And their hearts were open, And they did understand in their hearts the words which He prayed; 34 Nevertheless, so great and marvelous were the words which He prayed, that they cannot be written, Neither can they be uttered by man. 35 And it came to pass that when Jesus had made an end of praying, He came again to the disciples and saith unto them: "So great faith have I never seen among all the Jews, Wherefore, I could not show unto them so great miracles because of their unbelief; 36 Verily I say unto you, there are none of them that have seen so great things as ye have seen, Neither have they heard so great things as ye have heard." 37 And it came to pass that He commanded the multitude that they should cease to pray, and also His disciples,

Dr. James Tour shares his life-changing testimony of Jesus here:
"Yea, when ye shall call upon the Father in my name, with a broken heart and a contrite spirit, then shall ye know that the Father hath remembered the covenant which he made unto your fathers, O house of Israel;"
"And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
