So, this verse nailed me this morning. I've read it each year for 15 years but today it got me!
Here we have a picture of the incarnate Christ praying. Most likely it is a portrayal of His prayer in the garden of Gethsemane. Luke tells us of that night:
Christ prayed. Christ prayed fervently. Christ "offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death."
Those thoughts make me ask do I pray? Do we pray? Do we pray fervently? Do we offer up prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One able to save us from death?
What do our prayers look like? Honestly, mine don't look very much like Christ's prayers - not at all! I am convicted this morning that Christ offered up "wet prayers" and that mine are far too often incredibly dry.
