Our Prayer

Even in anguish and grief

Is made to the Father

Asking for what we desire


Then we surrender to the wisdom of His will


Footnotes:

Even in anguish and grief, He prayed

“He began to be very distressed and troubled".

(Mt. 26:37; Mk 14:33)

“My soul is deeply grieved to the point of death”

(Mt. 26:38; Mark 14:34)

And being in agony He was praying very fervently.

(Luke 22:44)


Likewise, our prayer is made to the father

your Father knows what you need before you ask Him

(Mt. 6:8)

your Father who is in heaven (will) give what is good

to those who ask Him! (Mt. 7:11)
