Luke 22:40-42 The Passion Translation (TPT)

40 There he told the apostles, “Keep praying for strength to be spared from the severe test of your faith that is about to come.”

41 Then he withdrew from them a short distance[a] to be alone. Kneeling down, he prayed, 42 “Father, if you are willing, take this cup of agony away from me.[b] But no matter what, your will must be mine.”

  1. Luke 22:41 Literally “a stone’s throw away.”
  2. Luke 22:42 Jesus asked the Father to be spared from death in the garden so that he could go all the way to the cross. His prayer was answered. The blood that dripped in the garden would not redeem. Jesus had to carry the cross and fulfill all that was written of him. See Heb. 5:7.
