“Jesus Prays At Gethsemane”

Key Verse

  “Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak” (Matthew 26:41).

Text — Matthew 26:36-46


The prayer of Jesus Christ at Gethsemane provides us a practical example and significance of prayer in the life of believers. Despite the fact that He is God, He demonstrated dependence on His heavenly Father through prayer. Walking with God will be extremely difficult without prayer. Many Christian youths complain and murmur whenever they face challenges. Why will you not follow the example of Jesus by taking whatever challenge you are facing to the Lord in prayer? One way a believer can show faith is to talk to God in prayer.

Prayer is one of the spiritual exercises many youths find difficult to carry out. The Spirit indeed is always willing to pray, but the flesh could be weak. This was the case of the disciples at Gethsemane. So, the way to learn how to pray is to start praying. There are basic principles of prayer that you can learn from the prayer of Jesus at Gethsemane. We should go to a quiet place; pray consistently in faith according to the will of God concerning our challenges. He will answer you.


Talk to God in prayer.


There is no alternative to prayer.
