Your Will Be Done

Jesus walked on a little way. Then he knelt down on the ground and prayed, “Father, if it is possible, don’t let this happen to me! Father, you can do anything. Don’t make me suffer by having me drink from this cup. But do what you want, and not what I want.”

(Mark 14:35-36 CEV)

“Lord, please make me willing to do what You want,” has been my prayer every time I’m faced with a situation that I have a hard time accepting. It’s based on Jesus’ prayer at Gethsemane, a prayer that I’ve found to be very effective. In fact, I’ve come to accept many things in life only because I’ve asked God to make me willing to do so. Think about it. If Jesus needed to ask the Father three times to grant Him a willing spirit to go through the suffering that awaited Him, how much more do we need to ask God to help us accept His will when we’re faced with hardships.

Only God can make us willing to accept His will.
