Stay With Me, Watch And Pray

Stay with me,
Remain here with me,
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray.

Stay here and keep watch with me.
Watch and pray, watch and pray!

Stay with me,
Remain here with me,
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray not to give way to temptation.

The spirit is eager, but the flesh is weak.
My heart is nearly broken with sorrow.
Remain here with me, stay awake and pray.

Stay with me,
Remain here with me,
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray.
Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass me by.

Stay with me,
Remain here with me,
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray.
Father if this cannot pass me by without my drinking it,
Your will be done.

Stay with me,
Remain here with me,
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray.

Stay with me,
Remain here with me,
Watch and pray.
Watch and pray.

His Rock My Rock

While I spent time with our Lord in Gethsemane last night, I pondered. Why did my Lord cling to this rock. Why not keep waking up St. Peter, St James and St John?

The rock was and still is today, a better specimen at doing God’s will then any mortal man. The rock our Lord clung to, had been created by God, to do as God asked, and did exactly what God had designed it to do. To be a rock. It was not budging from Gods order. Thus was the obedience of our Lord. He could not be moved from carrying out God’s will. He did exactly as our Father had asked. Thus the reason we cling to Him and not any worldly object or person. He is my Rock. He doesn’t budge. He doesn’t change, I do. He is set firm and His Bride is set with Him. She does not budge.
