Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he told the disciples, "Sit here till I go over there and pray."

Then he went forward a little and fell on his face praying, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass me. Yet, not what I will but what thou wilt." Then he went to the disciples and found them asleep; and he said to Peter, "So the three of you could not watch with me for a single hour? Watch and pray, all of you, so that you may not slip into temptation. The spirit is eager but the flesh is weak." Again he went away for the second time and prayed, "My Father, if this cup cannot pass unless I drink it, thy will be done." And when he returned he found them asleep again, for their eyes were heavy. So he left them and went back for the third time, praying in the same words as before. Then he went to the disciples and said to them, "Still asleep? still resting? The hour is near, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Come, get up and let us go. Here is my betrayer close at hand!" While he was still speaking, up came Judas, one of the twelve, accompanied by a large mob with swords and cudgels who had come from the high priests and the elders of the people. Now his betrayer had given them a signal; he said, " Whoever I kiss, that is the man." So he went up at once to Jesus; "Hail, rabbi!" he said, and kissed him. Jesus said, "My man, do your errand." Then they laid hands on Jesus and seized him.

Yet, not what I will but what thou wilt." Then he came and found them asleep; so he said to Peter, "Are you sleeping, Simon? Could you not watch for a single hour? Watch and pray, all of you, so that you may not slip into temptation. The spirit is eager but the flesh is weak." Again he went away and prayed in the same words as before; then he returned and found them once more asleep, for their eyes were heavy. They did not know what to say to him. Then he came for the third time and said to them, "Still asleep? still resting? No more of that! The hour has come, here is the Son of man betrayed into the hands of sinners. Come, get up, here is my betrayer close at hand." At that very moment, while he was still speaking, Judas [Iscariot] one of the twelve came up accompanied by a mob with swords and cudgels who had come from the high priests and scribes and elders.

Now I want the men to offer prayer at any meeting of the church; and let the hands they lift to heaven be holy ??they must be free from anger and dissension.







Put affection into your love for the brotherhood; be forward to honour one another; never let your zeal flag; maintain the spiritual glow; serve the Lord; let your hope be a joy to you; be stedfast in trouble, attend to prayer,

Take heed to yourselves in case your hearts get overpowered by dissipation and drunkenness and worldly anxieties, and so that Day catches you suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all dwellers on the face of all the earth. From hour to hour keep awake, praying that you may succeed in escaping all these dangers to come and in standing before the Son of man."
