“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41 NIV)
At the most weakest moment in His life, Jesus chose to watch and pray. Knowing what soon awaited Him, He told His close friends to do what He was about to do – pray. Clearly, they were so overcome with sorrow that they chose to sleep on it instead (Luke 22:45). How many of us have been in a similar situation where we were so overwhelmed by life’s heavy burdens that the last thing we wanted to do was pray? But pushing through it all with prayer is what we were meant to do. Someone has noted that the word push stands for pray until something happens. Jesus certainly did. Through prayer, He pushed through betrayal, denial, suffering and death. That is why He was victorious. The next time you find yourself on the edge, push. Pray until something happens.
