CHALLENGE TAKEN from the pdf mentioned back here
Suggestion for today from there:
Day 38: Today’s prayer challenge. Read Matthew 26:36-46. Then glean the essence of those verses and pray to God about your life in application to those verses. This prayer time I ask you to really pour out before God like Jesus did, the very heavy and hard to bear issues of life.
36 Then Jesus came with them to a place called Gethsemane, and said to His disciples, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.”
37 And He took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be grieved and distressed.
38 Then He said to them, “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death; remain here and keep watch with Me.”
39 And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.”
40 And He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, and said to Peter, “So, you men could not keep watch with Me for one hour?
41 “Keep watching and praying that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
42 He went away again a second time and prayed, saying, “My Father, if this cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your will be done.”
43 Again He came and found them sleeping, for their eyes were heavy.
44 And He left them again, and went away and prayed a third time, saying the same thing once more.
45 Then He came to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of Man is being betrayed into the hands of sinners.
46 “Get up, let us be going; behold, the one who betrays Me is at hand!”
I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in my heart that God has raised Him from the dead�I am saved. For with my heart I believe unto righteousness, and with my mouth confession is made unto salvation. Father, I thank You for redeeming me from the law of sin and death. I walk after the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, and I am no longer under condemnation. I have passed from death to life! Amen!
Scripture Reading: Romans 10:9-10; Romans 8:1;John 5:12
