Matthew 26:39. Father First 2 Dec 2023

Mat 26:39 And going on a little further
he fell on his face and prayed.
'My Father,' he said,
'if it is possible, let this cup pass me by.
Nevertheless, let it be as you,
not I, would have it.'

Excerpt from THE NEW JERUSALEM BIBLE, copyright (c) 1985 by Darton, Longman & Todd, Ltd. and Doubleday, a division of Penguin Random House, Inc. Reprinted by Permission.

Here I find Jesus making a step forward. ...
And then he falls on his face.
As if he had failed. Next he prays:
Not my will shall be done. But your will be done.

Yes I know, this is a distorted interpretation.
Nevertheless, I love the idea. I fail, I pray!


Jesus, listen to my prayer when I fail.
