This Prayer of Jesus
from Matthew26:39 NKJV
We pray and hope for an outcome that we have a tendency to picture in our minds. There is nothing wrong with that. Our Heavenly Father asks us to tell Him the desires of our heart, to ask and to believe that He hears us. He asks us to trust Him.
The greatest prayer we can prayer is nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will. Jesus prayed this prayer just before He went to His death on the cross. Jesus asked the Father if there was any way this cup could pass from Him, yet He went on to pray, nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.
The words of Jesus from His heart to His Heavenly Father, not as I will, but as You will. Can we do any less than finish all of our requests with this prayer…this prayer of Jesus? Amen!
