The entire chapter is Jesus’ prayer, said somewhere along the road to the Garden of Gethsemane or while yet in the Upper Room, which is overheard by His disciples. To begin, Jesus lifts up His eyes to heaven, and doing so while standing most think. The focus of His prayer is that the Father would glorify Him, that is, bring Him once again into His presence as He had been prior to the incarnation. Part of the prayer is that His followers would be in US, would be one. Jesus prays that the disciples will be with Him, and to se His glory that was His before the foundation of the world.
