Gethsemane Prayer

January 17, 2011 Leave a comment

Matthew 26:36-44¬†describes Jesus’ prayer time right before being arrested on the night of his betrayal.

It is especially interesting to me that God the Father’s answer to Jesus’ humble prayer was “No.”

So I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised or upset when God tells me “No.”

And I should pray more humbly, especially when I already have the sense that I’m asking for something that’s outside God’s will.

The Gospel According to the Jets

January 17, 2011 Leave a comment

The Jets are loud and obnoxious.  They make promises.

Yesterday, they kept their promises to their fans.

As we pray, we pour out our hearts to God.  Sometimes we make promises.

In Ecclesiastes 5:5, we read that “It is better not to make a vow than to make one and not fulfill it.”

Don’t make a vow to God in your prayers unless you intend to keep it.
