Then Jesus went back to his followers. He found them sleeping. He said to Peter, “Simon, why are you sleeping? You could not stay awake with me for one hour? Stay awake and pray for strength against temptation. Your spirit wants to do what is right. But your body is weak.”
— Mark 14:37-38 ERV (Read Full Text)
We so often underestimate our own weakness. We know what we want to do and be, but so often we fall far short of that. Our intentions are good, but our follow through is flawed. Thank God for his grace; we can rely on the Holy Spirit to strengthen us and help us.
Father, I know that without the help of your Holy Spirit, I will fall way short of what I want to do and who I want to be. Please strengthen me with your might through your Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
