Jesus Praying

Matthew 26:38-42 (New King James Version)
Then He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me.” He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.” Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.”


  1. That is just beautiful, Dolly. Sometimes we get so caught up in Easter egg hunts and candy and bunnies and lambs that we forget the real meaning behind Easter. Thank you for a beautiful post. xo Diana

    1. We all do that Diana. I have to make myself stop and think then share what he had done for us. I hope you and the family have a great Easter!
