Day 6 – Jesus’ prayer in the garden (part II)

Mat 26:40-41 (NKJV)

Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, ” What! Could you not watch with Me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Our Saviour could not have continued His arduous Journey to the Cross, least He stopped and prayed. The full weight of His mission weighed heavily upon Him and connecting with His Father was going to be the only means for Him to handle it. Victory in Life requires you to do the same. When the task ahead seems too much for you to carry, connect with your Heavenly Father, asking Him to give you the strength and courage needed to press onward, all the while refusing to allow the weakness of your flesh to dictate your future.
