Christ's agony at Gethsemane

Matthew 26:30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
36:Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. 37: And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy. 38: Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. 39: And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. 40: And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? 41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. 42: He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done. 43: And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy. 44: And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words. 45: Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 46: Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.

Mark 14:26 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.
32: And they came to a place which was named Gethsemane: and he saith to his disciples, Sit ye here, while I shall pray. 33: And he taketh with him Peter and James and John, and began to be sore amazed, and to be very heavy; 34: And saith unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful unto death: tarry ye here, and watch. 35: And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him. 36: And he said, Abba, Father, all things are possible unto thee; take away this cup from me: nevertheless not what I will, but what thou wilt. 37: And he cometh, and findeth them sleeping, and saith unto Peter, Simon, sleepest thou? couldest not thou watch one hour? 38: Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak. 39: And again he went away, and prayed, and spake the same words. 40: And when he returned, he found them asleep again, (for their eyes were heavy,) neither wist they what to answer him. 41: And he cometh the third time, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: it is enough, the hour is come; behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. 42: Rise up, let us go; lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.

Luke 22:39 And he came out, and went, as he was wont, to the mount of Olives; and his disciples also followed him. 40: And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. 41: And he was withdrawn from them about a stone's cast, and kneeled down, and prayed, 42: Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done. 43: And there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.

nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done

44: And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground. 45: And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow, 46: And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

John 18:1 When Jesus had spoken these words, he went forth with his disciples over the brook Cedron, where was a garden, into the which he entered, and his disciples.

O my Father
