Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Mark 14:38
In today’s world of immediate gratification and lack of patience we are often pray quickly and just as quickly, stop praying, often thinking that God didn’t hear us. Today’s verse reminds us of perseverance in prayer. The verse is about Jesus closest disciples who failed to stay awake in one of Christ’s most challenging hours but it also an encouragement to us, as Christ continues to love and teach his disciples to grow in their relationship with Him.
