Jesus' Second Prayer

When Jesus prayed a second time in the Garden of Gethsemane, His prayer focus had shifted from the negative perspective:


"...if it is possible, may this cup be taken from Me..."


to the positive perspective:


"...if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may Your will be done."


And we may almost hear Him add,


"Therefore, My Father, help Me, I pray..." as He wept in sorrow and dread of the cross


This event leaves us wondering whether or not Christ's victory over sin, death and Satan actually commenced in Gethsemane, though it was completed on the cross.


Meditation:


Matthew 26:39,42,44


"...My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from Me. Yet not as I will, but as You will...


...My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink, may Your will be done...


...Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour is near, and the Son of Man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise, let us go! Here comes my betrayer!"
