Matthew 26:40 – With Me

Today’s Readings: Feb 9 Ex 29:1‐30:10, Matt 26:14‐46, Ps 31:19‐24, Prov 8:14‐26

Matthew 26:40 And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, “So, could you not watch with me one hour?

Have you ever struggled to understand why the disciples could not stay awake, watch and pray with Jesus? Surely the men how knew him and walked with him could stay awake with him and pray for a few hours when he was facing his most important crossroad.

As I read this passage I was reminded of our call in chapter 24 to … stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. We are not unlike the disciples. Jesus has called us to pray and seek the Lord as we wait for his return, and we fall asleep.

What are the alarms in your life that help to keep you awake with him?
