Matthew 26:36-53
[36] Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place
called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples,
Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.

[37] And he took with him Peter and the two sons
of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

[38] Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding
sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here,
and watch with me.

[39] And he went a little farther, and fell on
his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father,
if it be possible, let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

[40] And he cometh unto the disciples, and
findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter,
What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

[41] Watch and pray, that ye enter not into
temptation: the spirit indeed is willing,
but the flesh is weak.

[42] He went away again the second time,
and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this
cup may not pass away from me, except
I drink it, thy will be done.

[43] And he came and found them asleep
again: for their eyes were heavy.

[44] And he left them, and went away
again, and prayed the third time,
saying the same words.

[45] Then cometh he to his disciples, and
saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your
rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and
the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

[46] Rise, let us be going: behold, he is
at hand that doth betray me.

[47] And while he yet spake, lo, Judas, one
of the twelve, came, and with him a great
multitude with swords and staves, from
the chief priests and elders of the people.

[48] Now he that betrayed him gave them
a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss,
that same is he: hold him fast.

[49] And forthwith he came to Jesus, and
said, Hail, master; and kissed him.

[50] And Jesus said unto him, Friend, wherefore
art thou come? Then came they, and laid hands
on Jesus and took him.

[51] And, behold, one of them which were with
Jesus stretched out his hand, and drew his
sword, and struck a servant of the high
priest's, and smote off his ear.

[52] Then said Jesus unto him, Put up again
thy sword into his place: for all they that
take the sword shall perish with the sword.

[53] Thinkest thou that I cannot now pray to
my Father, and he shall presently give me
more than twelve legions of angels?


I pray your day is filled with God's limitless love!
