Right before Jesus was betrayed and handed over to the Romans to stand “trial” he went to the Garden at Gethsemane to pray. He brought Peter and the sons of thunder (James and John) to stand guard while He prayed. As you would suspect the disciples were tired from just having a large passover meal and were unable to stay awake. So, during this time Jesus prays for God’s will to be done in his life three different times. But thats not the point of the story I am sharing with you. Peter, James, and John kept falling asleep when they should have been standing watch. As a Marine this behavior disgusts me but Jesus handles it differently. The first time this happens Jesus says “Are you asleep? Can’t you just stand watch for one hour? Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the body is weak.” They ignore this advise and fall asleep again, He returns once more and they have nothing to say to Him because they were sleeping again.
