Grace and Peace to you.
In his anguish he prayed more earnestly,
and his sweat became like great drops of blood
falling down on the ground.
— Luke 22.44
When the weight of the world is great,
when you do not know how to pray,
your faith is weak and your heart
has no strength in its hands,
don’t trouble yourself with praying.
Come into the garden
with him who bears you
and all Creation in his compassion.
He simply needs you
to be there for him while he prays,
to be with him, as with anyone you love,
to pray for him, as for anyone you love.
Be still and stay with him.
Let him love the world.
