… But three times

Gethsemane: Matthew 26-36:46

I noticed in this scripture that Jesus did not go to His Father just once when He was in agony and questioning His will… but three times. THREE TIMES!

I was once told that if I pray about the same thing more than once then I’m proving that I don’t trust God and lack faith…🙄

I DO NOT believe this is true, for anyone!

God is close to the broken hearted and if you need to cry out to Him more than once or ask Him again or run to Him again… then do it… again, and again and again… run to the Father.

Lean on God as much as you desire.
He will never forsake you.
He is always there.
He will meet you there again, and again and again!
He loves you unconditionally.
Try again, pray again, rise again, kneel again, cry again, run again, and again and again.
… just do it again!

36 Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” 37 He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. 38 Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay here and keep watch with me.” 39 Going a little farther, he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will.” 40 Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter. 41 “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” 42 He went away a second time and prayed, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” 43 When he came back, he again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy. 44 So he left them and went away once more and prayed the third time, saying the same thing. 45 Then he returned to the disciples and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and resting? Look, the hour has come, and the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise! Let us go! Here comes my betrayer!”
