Holy Thursday…

The Garden of Gethsemane is where Jesus prayed the night of his betrayal and arrest (Mark 14:32-50). I have always been struck with the despair and agony┬áJesus felt and when in this state- he prayed- three times finally stating-“thy will be done”.

Lesson: prayer is not always filled with sweet language and fine expressions. Many times prayer turns out to be a battle. It is a valley of tears and struggle. The soul has to cry out to God. But one can have the assurance that God hears it all and answers them all. Therefore let us continue to pray.
