"Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, 'My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.'"
At Gethsemane, Jesus gave us a perfect example of how to earnestly and honestly pray about the hard things we face (He asked the Father to take away the bitter cup He faced), while letting go of our control to God’s perfect will (He submitted wholly to God and His will). Then, having done so, Jesus said confidently, “Let us go” (v. 46), and turned with resolve toward the hard task ahead, all for His great love of us!
In facing the hard things in life, ask God for the grace to let go and the resolve to follow hard after His will.
