Day 7 – Jesus’ prayer in the garden (part III)

Mat 26:42-46 (NKJV)

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.” 43 And He came and found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. 44 So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45 Then He came to His disciples and said to them, ” Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise, let us be going. See, My betrayer is at hand.”

At times, the load you carry may require you to pray over it until your breakthrough comes. On His Journey to the Cross, our Saviour recognized His need to be full of God’s presence in order to face what lay ahead. Physical sacrifices should never be met without the spiritual sacrifice of prayer. Victory in Life doesn’t come easy, it often requires hard work, determination, sleepless nights, coupled with much prayer. Be determined to follow Christ’s example and become a person of prayer.
