Day 25

Read Mark 14:32-42

Admit it. Have you ever fallen asleep when trying to pray? We know our weaknesses and temptations, but so does Jesus. Where we sometimes give in, Jesus fully obeyed his Father.

Reflection: What does Jesus’ prayer at Gethsemane reveal about his humanity? What does it reveal about His relationship with his Father?

Prayer Point: Thank the Lord Jesus that he willingly accepted the cup of suffering and went to the cross to save weak and failing men and women like us.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: A Dark Night in the Garden

Reflection: Why did Jesus want to pray? What was he planning to do that was so hard?

Prayer Point: As you get ready for Good Friday and Easter Sunday, ask God to help you better understand why Jesus was willing to give his life for sinners like us.
