“41 And he withdrew from them about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, 42 saying, “Father, if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours, be done.” 43 And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him. 44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” (Luke 22:41-44).

O Father, help us to learn from our Savior how to pray. Whatever trials we may walk through, they cannot compare with the agony that Christ bore in the Gethsemane. Help us to pray with His fervor, and with His submission. “Being in agony, He prayed more earnestly…” In the midst of the storms of our soul, help us to run to You, and not run away from You. Grant us to pray with earnestness, Lord. Enliven our prayers from being mechanical and lifeless to being full of passion and intensity. And help us to always pray in reverent submission to You, “Now my will, but Yours be done.” Grant us to trust in Your perfect wisdom and in Your omnipotent power. You will withold nothing good from those who walk uprightly. So help us to offer everything to You in prayer.

Larry
