Acts 20:28-38; Psalm 68; John 17:11-19

Raised his eyes to heaven

Jesus says this long prayer (the whole of chapter 17) aloud so that the disciples can hear and learn. Every verse is important and worthy of reflection, but so too is Jesus attitude of prayer. He is not just sitting chatting, he adopts a posture of prayer by raising his eyes to heaven. St Paul also, when he had finished speaking, knelt down with his friends to pray. My posture and attitude can influence my mind, as well as being a witness to anyone who sees me at prayer.
