Bible: Luke 22:39-46

On the Mount of Olives

22:39 Then 1  Jesus 2  went out and made his way, 3  as he customarily did, to the Mount of Olives, 4  and the disciples followed him. 22:40 When he came to the place, 5  he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” 6  22:41 He went away from them about a stone’s throw, knelt down, and prayed, 22:42 Father, if you are willing, take 7  this cup 8  away from me. Yet not my will but yours 9  be done.” 22:43 [Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and strengthened him. 22:44 And in his anguish 10  he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.] 11  22:45 When 12  he got up from prayer, he came to the disciples and found them sleeping, exhausted 13  from grief. 22:46 So 14  he said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Get up and pray that you will not fall into temptation! 15
