At last, he stood up again and returned to the disciples, only to find them asleep, exhausted from grief. “Why are you sleeping?” he asked. “Get up and pray. Otherwise temptation will overpower you.” (Luke 22:45-46 NLT)
Prayer: LORD, when I face deep emotional issues or difficult and trying circumstances, help me keep my spiritual AND physical eyes open and be vigilant in prayer. Since prayer can keep me from being overpowered by temptation or testing, help me pray ever more and more! Draw me deeper in prayer with You and in our relationship. Make it so. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
