These are the words Jesus gave to the 3 disciples at the Garden of Gethsemane. He took the eleven into the Garden, and then took James, John and Peter further into the garden to pray with Him. He said, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” (Matthew 26:38)
This was the night He would be arrested and tried and, the next morning, crucified. He knew what was before Him, for this was the very purpose of coming to us — to be the sacrificial Lamb who would take upon Himself all our sin, guilt and shame. He would be pierced for our sins, He would be crushed for our evil, He would be beaten severely and then put to death for the punishment due us. Though He knew the joy before Him — resurrection, ascension, exaltation and return — what He desired most at that time was the prayers of His closest friends. He needed prayer. The 3 needed prayer. All eleven needed prayer. Yet only one prayed — Jesus.
