As Jesus is knowingly being betrayed and preparing for what is to come, He takes some of His disciples away to pray with Him. They fall asleep... while Jesus spends time in prayer with His father. While understanding that He is about to take all of God's wrath upon himself, Jesus is under so much stress that He literally sweats blood. Jesus is a perfect example to us of what it looks like to have a relationship with our Father, to have full confidence and trust in Him, and how to completely submit to Him... even in extreme situations! We may not always have the strength to do what God asks us to do, but Jesus does! Through prayer we can begin to strengthen our relationship with Him and He will give us the strength to do what we are called to do.
