Praying Like Jesus


  How Jesus Prayed The picture above is from the Garden of Gethsemane where Jesus prayed before he was arrested. In the garden, a place that should represent peace and tranquility, Jesus poured out his heart in sorrow and anguish. In Matthew 26:39 Jesus prayed, "My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will." We see Jesus praying a short prayer, but also a profound one. His prayer shows the reality of what he felt in his situation, but also his complete surrender to the greater purposes of God. [...]
