Lenten Devotional - Day Twenty-Seven

Day 27:

Read: Matthew 26:36-46

Think: Jesus knows suffering. In Hebrews 4:15, the writer explains the simple truth that Jesus can empathize with anything we go through. In the garden before Jesus was betrayed, He agonized over the pain that would await Him: both physically and in the separation from His Father. What pain are you going through right now that you need Jesus to comfort you in? How could you begin to pray the prayer Jesus did, “I want your will to be done, not mine”?


Pray: Jesus, thank you for so deeply understanding my pain. Help me to lift my pain up to you and let you have your will. I trust you.

Apply: Write down one word describing the struggle you are currently going through. Put it on your mirror, so it reminds you in the morning to talk to Jesus about it. You’ll be surprised how prayer can change your perspective.
