In the Garden He Prayed
Jesus, alone in the garden, fell to the ground where He prayed. “Father, O holy Father, my soul is dark and dismayed. Please take this bitter cup from me. My spirit longs to be free. Yet not my will,” cried the
Savior as there in the garden He prayed. Soldiers with clubs came to seize Him as there in the garden He prayed; led by a fallen disciple, by a kiss Jesus was betrayed. Abandoned by those who most loved
Him, deserted and all alone. Taken to face His accusers from the garden where He had prayed. Jesus, the chosen One of God, Son of the great I AM! Sent to redeem the world in love, Jesus, God’s holy
Lamb. It was there in the garden He prayed.
