Weak is the flesh in a willing spirit


Gospel of Mark Ch 14 v- 37 thru 42

37 When he returned he found them asleep. He said to Peter, “Simon, are you asleep? Could you not keep watch for one hour? 38 Watch and pray that you may not undergo the test. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.” 39 Withdrawing again, he prayed, saying the same thing. 40 Then he returned once more and found them asleep, for they could not keep their eyes open and did not know what to answer him. 41 He returned a third time and said to them, “Are you still sleeping and taking your rest? It is enough. The hour has come. Behold, the Son of Man is to be handed over to sinners. 42 Get up, let us go. See, my betrayer is at hand.”

Do you believe that community prayer is better than one person praying? No matter the thoughts we share with God Jesus wanted His Disciples to pray with Him His Community of believers who were scared, tired and unwilling to die. He knew this but He kept anointing them to share the Gospel news; the Salvation of your soul. When we join hands as a community, we see the Lord move in Mysterious ways. We find healing and peace seeking not the will of our own desires but that of His Holy Will in all things. We don’t want people to die but know the Will of God will take a soul when we aren’t ready to let go as He plants His Spirit upon you to speak as you must to give as you can and to remain in peace as the passion He gave our souls to share. I don’t know about you but I’d rather hang around people who were filled with Christ’s peace seeking no advantage over another in any way possible but expressing true love of living Redeemed. We experience this daily in Mass where we find His True Body Blood Soul and Divinity truly present as the only way to live Spirit led God inspired Christ fed. “Can you stay awake and pray with me for one hour,” says the Lord. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty we pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. Silence for the prayers of others dealing with the war in Ukraine. In the Holy Spirit we pray our brothers in Kairos especially a prayer for our men in blue. We pray for our niece Brittany who is a mother of four and 33 years old who has brain cancer stage four. We pray for Holy Mother Church. We pray for our Holy Mother. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

11-12-2022 Mark’s Gospel Ch 14 v-3742

**Weak is the flesh in a willing spirit**

Asleep them found

Saying Jesus to Peter

Asleep you Simon sound

Hour one watch with the Teacher

Pray and watch test undergo not

Weak is the flesh in a willing spirit spot

Again Jesus withdrew praying it would stop

Same prayer He asked Will Yours My lot

Once again returning to see them sleeping

Open eyes they couldn’t keep from weeping

Him answer how their eyes closing for sleep seeking

Times three returned saying rest taking sleeping still weaklings

Enough is enough

Coming has hour sinners will cuss

Handing Man’s Son over their lust

Betrayer Mine is here creating a fuss
