Going little BEYOND….
Mathew 26:39”He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, "My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will."

You know what , if I have to expound the above scripture about the PRAYER OF JESUS at the Garden of Gethsemane, I just cannot instantly start tapping away on my laptop, I spent a couple of hours reading the Word, praying and then I sat to write this devotion….listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit diligently.  Jesus told his disciples, "Sit here while I go over there and pray”, while going he took Peter, James and John (the chosen 3); however, he left them too and went further beyond, away from them to pray because HE said: “My soul is deeply grieved, to the point of death.”  When you go through hell and high waters and when the storm is too strong, you got to go a little beyond…..away from people to have a personal conversation with your God.  The Bible says, “Jesus went a little BEYOND them…”

Look what Jesus did, He:a) fell on His face and b) prayed, saying, c)"My Father…this is no cute prayer when you pray with good wordings and accent but this is what you call as ‘desperate prayer’ not Sunday class prayer or good-night prayer but this is heart-wrenching prayer calling  upon  the Heavenly Father.   You do this, when none other can help you but Jesus! No big hospital, doctors or magicians can save you, your marriage or children, only God is able to do the impossible.  Someone out there needs to hear this today!

I love this part which I would like to emphasize today, going a little BEYOND to commune with God.  I one day went to my friend’s house and asked her to lock me inside her house while they go away to work.  I needed the privacy to pray, if not I would have collapsed, such was my situation; however, she knew none of it and did not ask me ‘why’ but just locked me in. Now, when I think back it is weird but behind those closed doors when I prayed I got charged again to fight my battles.  God bless you!
