Jesus knelt in prayer in great anguish in the Garden of Gethsemane. He prayed that the cup of God's wrath might pass from Him, but that in the end God's will would be done. He submitted to God's will and accomplished our salvation. He also teaches us to find a solitary place at times to pray, to pray that God would deliver us from evil, and to pray that God's will is also done in our lives.
When we lose control, we can feel frustrated and angry as the Pharisees were as they watched the crowds singing their Hosanna's to Jesus. But in times like these, it is so comforting to know that Jesus is in control to bring salvation to us. Text: John 12:12-19
Outside of our Lord's Passion , there is no story that shows both the compassion and power of our Lord more than the raising of Lazarus from the dead. Our Lord has that same compassion and power for us as we walk through life with Him until He receives us into His glory.
