Through Jesus prayer for his disciples we will see the importance of understanding of the Holiness of the Heavenly Father and its significance for us.  Jesus repeatedly emphasizes the incredible intimacy within the Triune God, and the unity of God the Father and God the Son is the basis of our unity and our sanctification.  The burden of Jesus prayer is for protection from the evil one, and part of the unity theme is the glory to and Holiness of the Father.  Jesus was and still is praying we will be the Holy People of a Holy God!
