To Bypass or to Submit

Looking at the conditions of our lives at home, in church and in society, one wonders whether or not we make more effort praying that we may bypass God's will for us than that we may do what He has already revealed to us??


P.S.


Jesus prayed once to avoid His death on the cross for sinful men and women like us, but twice to submit to His Father's will for Him. If it was uphill for Him till the end, how much more is it for us?


Maybe we should consider praying once that we may avoid His will and a hundred times thereafter that we will be enabled to do His will for us


Meditation:


Matthew 26:39-44


"Then Jesus went with His disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and He said to them,


'Sit while I go over there and pray.'....


"Then He said to them


'My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with Me.'....


"Then He returned to His disciples and found them sleeping


'Could you men not keep watch with Me for one hour?'....


He went away a second time and prayed


When He came back, He again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. So He left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing
