  2. I love this! Such a sweet reminder that Jesus got tired too and needed to retreat and find rest. Jesus is a wonderful example of how we should pray. Being alone. Abiding. Speaking but also listening! Great post!

  9. Last night my husband and I watched Jesus Christ Superstar. I guess we were trying to go back to the days of our youth. LOL. Anyway,the scene that stuck with me was the one at the garden. So, its interesting I should log onto this. Happy WFW!

  10. He didn't go a day without passionate prayer to His Father. Oh, that I would live and breathe by prayer in the same way.

  12. How our own will and desires control and motivate us! Surrendering to the Lord is complete freedom. To be able to say, "Your will, not mine" is by grace alone.
    Thank you for this reminder of surrendering our will to the One who surrendered His life for us.
    Blessings,
    Janis

  14. For a reason that reminds me of something comfy, I am loving that verse. The photo makes me feel like I'm browsing graveyards again - a past time that charms me no end. Here's hoping we learn to pray the way He did.

  16. What a difficult prayer to pray! Our pastor frequently prays, "Lord, please (fill in the blank), unless You have a better plan." Not easy, but it's what we should do! Thanks for sharing.

    Blessings,
