Most of us have prayed at some time or another in a request to God for help in a matter of concern we couldn't handle ourselves, or maybe we just wanted to express to Him our love and appreciation for something He has done for us.
Jesus prayed one of the most moving prayers ever uttered when He asked that the cup of crucifixion, that was about to be thrust upon Him in the garden of Gethsemane might be taken away.
Then in the very next breath He said, "Nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will" Matt. 26:39. What a prayer ! What Strength ! What Power.
Christ desires to be with us in what ever crisis we may find ourselves in. He has gone through more than any of us can ever imagine.
He has promised us He will never leave us or forsake us, He may not make the problems go away but he will give us the power to deal with them and to overcome them with His grace.
