“And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour?’ Mark 14:37
Jesus Christ said the above words to Peter. He took peter, james and john and went to gesthsemane to pray. While praying Jesus took a break at that time He asked peter couldnt he pray with Him one hour.
Even though three desciples were there, Jesus questioned only peter to pray, because Peter just before said that he will follow Jesus until death. Compared to other desciples peter showed more faith like walking on water.
Jesus knew that peter is going to deny him but still He asked him to pray. why ??
If Peter would have prayed, he might not have denied Jesus. Thats what Jesus could have expected, but unfortunately he slept.
Like peter we also most of times don’t pray . When temptations come we deny Jesus. How can we deny christ ?
When we go through problems we try to solve it by our own capability, but inturn leads to failure. We when face trial we dont submit to go through the trial instead try to find out alternative plans. Finally when dont follow the character and behaviour of Jesus Christ, this way we are denying Him. Let God give grace and prayer spirit to us.
” A man who prays will never deny christ”
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. ” – Luke 21:36
