First Station: Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane

Then Jesus went with them to the olive grove called Gethsemane, and he said, “Sit here while I go over there to pray.” He took Peter and Zebedee’s two sons, James and John, and he became anguished and distressed. He told them, “My soul is crushed with grief to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” He went on a little farther and bowed with his face to the ground, praying, “My Father! If it is possible, let this cup of suffering be taken away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Then he returned to the disciples and found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Couldn’t you watch with me even one hour? Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak!” (Matthew 26:36-41)

Prayer: Lord, grant us your strength and wisdom, that we may seek to follow your will in all things.

*Pray that you, our staff and those we serve will remove self from decisions and yield to God’s plans and purposes for our life and ministry.

ACTIVITY: Choose three people to pray for over the next 14 days. Write their name names on a post-it note, with your specific request for each of them and place the post-it note in a place you will see it daily as a reminder to pray for them.
