An Amazing Day

Yesterday, I was reading Mark 14:33-34. When Jesus was in the garden of Gethsemane, He took Peter, James and John with Him, and He began to be troubled and deeply distressed. He said to them, “My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch,” and He went a little further and fell on the ground and prayed that if it were possible, the hour might pass Him.  The point that I am making here is that Jesus felt the need to pray when He felt troubled, deeply distressed and  sorrowful in His soul. This scripture awakened an awareness in me that this is what Jesus did when He had problems going on in his soul. I was feeling this way myself as I was reading this scripture. It made me realize that I need to do the same thing that Jesus did when he felt overwhelmed with His issues.  He prayed, and if He could find relief by going to the Father in prayer, then so could I.

Hebrews 2:17 says that He had to be made like His brethren.  “For in all that He Himself suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are being tempted” (Heb. 2:18). We are also commanded to pray and not lean to our own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).
