The prayer of Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane is perhaps the greatest. It is a very moving prayer.
Our Lord Jesus Christ asked His Father in Heaven that the cup of crucifixion which was about to be pushed on Him might be taken away.
But then in His next prayer He said “nevertheless, not my will, but your will.” This is a prayer of strength and power.
When the apostle Paul asked God to remove his “thorn in the flesh”, God did not remove it. Instead He said “my grace is sufficient for you.” (2 Corinthians 12:9) And so, rather than complaining or becoming very angry at God, Paul joyfully submitted to God’s will!
He discovered that God’s grace truly was sufficient for him, even in the midst of pain and hardship.
So Brothers in Sisters in Christ, Jesus desires to be with you in whatever situation you may find yourself. Call upon His Name. Then see if He will not do as He has promised He will do.
He may not make your problems go away, but He will give you the power to deal with them and to overcome them by His Grace. Amen
