The Sorrowful and Submissive Soul of the Savior

Matthew 26:38-39:
Then he said to them, “My soul is very sorrowful, even to death; remain here, and watch with me.” And going a little farther he fell on his face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.”

"Lord, forgive us for the times we have read about Gethsemane with dry eyes."

-Prayer of Frederick Leahy in The Cross He Bore, p. 5.
